Proceedings 



of the 

Yancey Baptist Association 

THEME: "Freedom in Christ Brings Responsibility Through Love" 

Scripture: Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, 
with the yoke of bondage .... For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only 
use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 

Galatians 5:1, 13 

Tuesday Afternoon, August 5, 1986 
PLEASANT GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH 

1. The 108th Annual Session of the Yancey Baptist Association opened with a 
piano prelude by Mrs. Orlena Anglin, Music Director at Bolens Creek Baptist 
Church. The host church was Pleasant Grove Baptist Church. Dr. Joseph Godwin, 
Moderator and pastor of Pleasant Gap Baptist Church, presided. 

2. Jean Whitson, Associational Music Director and Music Director at West 
Burnsville Baptist Church, led the congregation in singing "Blessed Assurance." 

3. Rev. John T. Davis, Jr., pastor of West Burnsville Baptist Church, led in 
prayer. 

4. Rev. Lawrence Glenn, pastor of the host church, welcomed messengers and 
visitors. 

5. Dr. Godwin called the association into a business session. The program, as 
printed, was adopted as the agenda, insofar as possible. 

-11- 



6. Dr. Godwin appointed the following committees: 

Place and Preacher - 1988 Mrs. Opal McDougald, 

Mrs. Ouida Dahlin, Mrs. Louise Holcombe 

Committee for Reception of New Churches Richard Muri, 

Lawrence Glenn, Robert Melvin 

Administrative Committee Lester Murphey, 

Ray Strickland, John Davis 

Resolutions Committee Enzy Letterman, Mrs. Ed Hensley, 

Niles Howell 

There was no other business. 

7. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "Leaning on the Everlasting 
Arms." 

8. Dr. Godwin introduced Sue Fitzgerald from the Resource Center at Mars Hill 
College. She read from Judges 6. The following is a summary of her talk: 

Gideon had heard the call of the Lord to a big task. But he did not really believe 
that God had called him. Gideon kept asking God if he really wanted him. But God 
kept "calling" him. Gideon made excuses as to why he could not do what God wanted 
him to do. But Gideon finally answered the call. 

We are sometimes like Gideon. We sometimes think that we are too small to do 
what God wants us to do. We, like Gideon, make excuses for not answering God's 
call. We think that "small" is inferior. 

Just as God came to Gideon, so he comes to call us. We make excuses. We, like 
Gideon, want a sign. The signs are there. They are as follows: 

1. God created us and therefore we are important. God cares enough about us to 
come and die for us. 

2. Our church is part of the body of Christ. Therefore, it cannot be inferior. 

3. When churches in the association work together they are strong. 

4. There is a sign next door. Mars Hill College sees each church as important 
and created a resource center for our churches to use. It contains resources for 
each area of church life - missions, teaching, preaching, etc. They also pro- 
vide people to come to churches for different purposes. Revival teams from the 
college will go to churches. On October 28, the Book of James will be taught 
to get people ready to teach the January Bible Study. 

God gave Gideon all the resources he needed, but Gideon had to pick them up. 
God gives us our needed resources, which we also have to be willing to receive and 
to use. 

9. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "Love Lifted Me." 

10. A roll call of churches was made by Lavonne Murdock, associational clerk. 
Roll call showed that 91 people from 15 churches were present. Three visitors were 
present for a total present of 94. 

11. Dr. Godwin asked for news from the churches. The following reported: 

A. Lawrence Glenn, pastor of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, reported (1) They 
have upholstered the seats. (2) They built a fellowship hall and put in a kitchen. 
They have done this without taking money out of the treasury. The work has 
been done by the men of the church on Saturdays. The women cooked and 
brought meals for the workers to eat. (3) The church has been in spiritual unity. 
(4) Giving has increased and their gifts to missions has increased. (5) The WMU 
has had several projects in the community. 

B. Horace McLeroy, pastor of Brown's Creek Baptist Church, reported (1) They 
have completed their fellowship hall. (2) One man from the church went to 
Haiti to help in a building project. (3) Grace and Dan Allen from their church 
volunteered to work every other weekend at one of our Children's Homes. (4) 
They had the largest enrollment in Vacation Bible School that they have had in 
several years. -12- 



C. Daniel Whetstine, pastor of Shoal Creek Baptist Church, reported (1) Five new 
Christians are awaiting baptism. (2) On August 14, the key leaders from their 
church will meet to form a growth program to meet the needs of the un- 
churched in the county. 

D. Lester Murphey, pastor of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, reported (1) Their 
church is strong in missions giving. (2) Three new deacons were ordained in 
May. (3) There is a spirit of cooperation in their church. 

E. Orlena Anglin from Bolens Creek Baptist Church introduced their new pastor, 
Presley Morris, and stated how much they appreciated finally having a pastor. 

F. Robert Earl Willis from Crabtree Baptist Church reported (1) Crabtree Church 
went in debt $70,000 in October of 1985 and have paid off all but $8,000. (2) 
Three were baptized last Sunday. (3) Crabtree Church is in unity. 

G. Dr. Joseph Godwin, pastor of Pleasant Gap Baptist Church, reported (1) Five 
were baptized this year, three young people and two adults. (2) Two young 
people have joined the choir. (3) Pleasant Gap is a church of "intelligent faith" 
with love to share with all who come. (4) The church has a new furnace, has 
paved the parking lot and has fenced the cemetery. 

H. Opal McDougald from South Estatoe Baptist Church reported (1) Their mis- 
sions offerings are good and most have gone over their goal. (2) They bought a 
piece of land between their church and the road. (3) They painted the church 
and put windows in the basement. (4) People are attending church and are 
interested in doing the Lord's work. 

There were no other reports. 

12. Dr. Godwin asked Orlena Anglin to introduce Presley Morris, new pastor at 
Bolens Creek Baptist Church. 

13. Leonard Morgan, Associational Director of Missions, introduced David She- 
riff, new pastor at Hall's Chapel Baptist Church. 

14. Dr. Godwin introduced Sara Ann Hobbs from the Division of Missions of the 
North Carolina Baptist State Convention to give the State Convention Report. 

15. A summary of Sara Ann Hobbs' report follows: 

1. We have just completed "Good News America - God Loves You." Eighty per- 
cent of the churches in North Carolina planned to participate in this project. 

2. The Cooperative Program is about 6 l /z% over last year at this time and is in 
line with the budget. 

3. We are involved in the Togo Partnership, the European Partnership and the 
West Virginia Partnership. 

4. A lot of work is being done through the Division of Missions. Most of Jesus' 
teaching after his resurrection had to do with missions. Most mission teaching 
is post-resurrection teaching. The resurrection gives us the power for mis- 
sions work. We have a missionary responsibility to the whole world and the 
resurrection gives us the power to do it. Missions is a worldwide responsibil- 
ity - church, association, state, country, to the whole world. 

Some of the missions emphases of the Division of Missions are 1. New church work. 
We are trying to take seriously the need for new churches. Ratio of Baptists to the 
North Carolina population is decreasing because (a) There are fewer baptisms, (b) 
New people are moving into North Carolina who are not Baptists, (c) More than 50% 
of the people in North Carolina are not in a meaningful relationship with any 
church. Throughout the state, new churches are being started to meet the needs of 
people who have moved into North Carolina and are not Christian. We also have 
30-35 language churches in 9 different languages. 2. Special Ministries - (a) In 
Murphy each year they have a nativity scene put out by the mentally retarded, (b) 
There is a new ministry at the race track. A tent is set up at the race track and services 
are held. Testimonies are given by Christian race track drivers. In the first 2 services, 
12 adults made professions of faith, (c) The prison ministry has been enlarged. We 
are now ministering not only to prisoners, but also to the family left at home and to 

-13- 



victims of crime. Now we are also ministering to people who work at the prisons. 

(d) There is now a truck-stop ministry to minister to truck drivers at truck stops. 

(e) Flea Market Ministry - Booths are rented at flea markets to minister to people 
there. 

Any place people are found, we need to minister to them. We do not need to wait 
for people to come to church. 

16. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "When We All Get To Heaven." 

17. Dr. Godwin stated that all the outreach Sara Ann Hobbs talked about was 
made possible by what we contribute through the Cooperative Program and through 
the North Carolina State Missions Offering. 

18. Wade and Wanda Harding from West Burnsville Baptist Church sang "Win 
the Lost At Any Cost, "After Calvary," and "We've Come This Far By Faith." 

19. Dr. Joseph Godwin introduced Luther Osment, Director of Western Area 
Family Services. 

20. Luther Osment spoke on "Southern Baptists and Christian Obedience: Part 1 
Teaching." The following is a summary of his talk: 

We, as Southern Baptists, have a great teaching ministry in our colleges and semi- 
naries. There is a distinct difference in our Baptist colleges. These schools are sup- 
ported by the Cooperative Program and the North Carolina State Missions Offering. 
2 Timothy 2:15 firmly applies to all of us. We all need to continually study and learn. 
There is none of us who knows everything. Mr. Osment said, "I'm of a mind that all 
of us will be changing our notes when we get to heaven." 

We have a responsibility, in the teaching ministry of Southern Baptists, in our own 
church. We need to do diligent study for teaching in Sunday School and other 
church programs. We need to involve ourselves in diligent study. 

As well as properly sharing God's word, we need also to share his spirit. We need 
to teach in love. 

21. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "Amazing Grace." 

22. Lawrence Glenn gave the instructions for supper and led in the benediction 
and blessing for supper. 

TUESDAY EVENING 

23. The evening session began with quiet music by Orlena Anglin, Pianist. Dr. 
Joseph Godwin, Moderator, presided. 

24. Jean Whitson, Associational Music Director, led the congregation in singing 
"Send The Light." 

25. Rev. Howard Buchanan, pastor of Young's Chapel Baptist Church, led in 
prayer. 

26. Luther Osment spoke to us on "Southern Baptists and Christian Obedience: 
Part 2 Preaching." He quoted Matthew 9:35 - 10:1. Following is a summary of his 
words: 

We, as Southern Baptists, have made a commitment to send 5,000 missionaries to 
125 countries and to preach the gospel to every creature on earth by the year 2000. 

He quoted Romans 10:9-15 and gave us 3 thoughts from the scriptures in Matthew 
and Romans. 1. We face a tremendously needy world. In North Carolina, there are 
six million people. More than half are not affiliated with any church. Here in 
Yancey County, we receive the urban spill. We can ignore these or we can open our 
minds and hearts and go out after them. 

Five billion people around the world need the gospel preached to them. We cannot 
limit ourselves to home. We cannot wait until we clean up the mess at home before we 
reach out to the world. If the earliest Christians had done this, they would still be 
trying to clean up Jerusalem. The greatest needs to be found around the globe are 
spiritual needs. Around this globe, we have lost nations - virtually lost continents. 

2. We face a message that can change this world. In Romans 10:9, God speaks to 
every man. -14- 



3. We face a responsibility to preach this message to this world. The passage of 
scripture in Romans contains four questions of eternal significance. 

We are to be preaching this message right here in Yancey County. The task of 
ministers is not to be a weather vane to reflect how the winds of the times are blowing. 
The minister is to be a sign post pointing in the direction of Jesus Christ no matter 
how the wind is blowing. 

We need to preach the gospel in the world. We can do this by missions giving. "I 
have never known a church to suffer financially because they were faithful in mis- 
sions giving. The church that isn't headed for the ends of the world is headed for the 
graveyard." God blesses missions giving and missions going. 

We are God's plan. He has no other plan than us to use what means we have at our 
disposal to spread His news around the world. 

27. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "What a Friend We Have in 
Jesus." 

28. The choir from Shoal Creek Baptist Church sang "Jesus Will Outshine Them 
All," "I Keep Falling in Love With Him," "Thank You For The Valley " and 
"Here They Come." 

29. A trio from Shoal Creek Baptist Church sang "Better Farther On" and "Who 
Ami." 

30. A roll call of churches showed that 106 people from 15 churches were present. 
There was one visitor for a total present of 107. 

31. Nat Howell, a member of West Burnsville Baptist Church who has made three 
volunteer mission trips to Togo, talked to us about his work in Togo and showed 
slides. He passed the offering plates filled with coins from Togo and asked each per- 
son to take one coin. Each time we look at the coin, we are to remember Togo in 
prayer. 

32. Dr. Robert Melvin, pastor of the Cane River Baptist Church, preached the 
Annual Sermon. He read Mark 6:30-44. A summary of his words follows: 

Jesus had sent the disciples out on a teaching and preaching mission. They came 
back so tired that Jesus took them across the sea for a "retreat." But when they 
arrived, a crowd had already gathered. Jesus had compassion on the crowd for they 
were "as sheep having no shepherd." So Jesus began to teach them of the principles of 
the Kingdom of God. 

One of the disciples suggested after a long day that the people be sent home so they 
could buy food on the way home. But Jesus suggested that the disciples feed the 
people. They canvassed the crowd, but found only five loaves and two fishes. 

Jesus said to have the people sit down. The disciples brought the five loaves and 
two fishes to Jesus. Jesus prayed over the food. Then He broke the bread and fish 
and gave it to the disciples to feed the crowd. All ate and twelve baskets full were left 
over. 

There is no explanation as to how the miracle happened. But there was more than 
enough to feed the five thousand. 

The followers of Jesus here discovered that their inadequate resources placed in 
the hands of Jesus, blessed and used by Him, became more than enough. 

That is the way it is with us today. Our inadequate resources, given to Jesus, 
blessed and used by Him, become enough. God takes our weaknesses and His grace is 
sufficient to change our weaknesses to His power. 

Cooperative work among the churches of the Yancey Baptist Association is work 
God wants us to do. If we, ordinary people, give our inadequate resources to Jesus to 
be blessed and used by Him, they become more than enough. 

"We have just one gift to give - ourselves, one way to give - in love and one hope in 
the giving - that God may be glorified. 

33. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "At the Cross." 

34. Rev. David Sheriff, pastor of Hall's Chapel Baptist Church, closed the meeting 
in prayer. 



Wednesday Morning, August 6, 1986 
BOLENS CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH 

35. The Wednesday morning session opened with quiet music by Belinda 
Buchanan, pianist. Belinda is the pianist at Bolens Creek Baptist Church. Dr. 
Joseph Godwin, Moderator, presided. 

36. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "Praise Him! Praise Him! " 

37. Lester Murphey, pastor of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, led in prayer. 

38. Rev. Presley Morris, pastor of the host church, welcomed the messengers and 
visitors to his church. 

39. A roll call of churches showed that 63 members from 14 churches were present. 
There were 7 visitors, bringing the total present to 70. 

40. Charles Tanner, Children's Homes Representative, gave a report on work that 
was being done at our Children's Homes. 

41. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "To God Be The Glory." 

42. Dr. Godwin stated that there were 100 dozen jars to be filled for the Children's 
Homes . . . To get the jars, see Cecil Huskins, associational Children's Homes Repre- 
sentative. 

43. Carol Bunting, Representative of Retirement Homes, gave a report on services 
of the Retirement Homes. She stated that Retirement Homes are now under a board 
mandate to admit no one who can not pay the full cost of their care. 

44. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus." 

45. Dr. Henry Stokes, from Wake Forest University, gave a report on Christian 
Higher Education. He stated that Baptist colleges, because they are private colleges, 
can help train the students in Christian and moral values as embodied in Jesus 
Christ. They also help train students for community and church leadership. "Stu- 
dents are the world in the making." 

46. John Ward, Representative of the Annuity Board, explained the current 
Church Annuity Plan and the Expanded Church Annuity Plan which goes into 
effect January 1, 1988. 

47. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "The Old Rugged Cross." 

48. Luther Osment spoke on "Southern Baptists and Christian Obedience: Part 3 
Worshipping and Work." He quoted Psalm 139, the song "Great Is Thy Faithful- 
ness" and Mark 2:1-12. Following is a brief summary of his words: 

When Jesus saw a sick person, He gave healing. When Jesus saw a sinful person, 
He offered forgiveness. He met the needs of the people as he met them. There is 
nothing in all the world we need in our churches more than men and women who 
will grab hold of a corner of this world's needs and not let go until it is taken to Jesus 
Christ. 

Jesus interrupted His worship service to meet the needs of the man sick with the 
palsy. He told him his sins were forgiven and to take up his bed and walk. 

When we get as willing to "carry our corner of the couch" as the men in Mark, 
God might let us see some miracles like these men saw. 

49. John Ward sang "Have Thine Own Way." 

50. Martha Ann Corn sang a song from "Crown Him King." 

51. Presley Morris gave instructions for lunch and led in the benediction and 
blessing. 

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON 

52. The afternoon session opened with a piano prelude by Belinda Buchanan. 
Joseph Godwin, Moderator, presided. 

53. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "Count Your Blessings." 

54. Rev. Horace McLeroy, pastor of Brown's Creek Baptist Church, led in prayer. 

55. Luther Osment spoke on "Southern Baptists and Christian Obedience: Part 4 
Healing." He quoted Matthew 9:35-38. -16- 



He talked about the healing ministry of Southern Baptists in their hospitals, re- 
tirement homes, and children's homes. He shared examples of specific ministries in 
these areas. 

56. Leonard Morgan, Director of Missions, gave a report. He introduced Gary 
Blunt, Chaplain of Prison Ministries. 

57. A roll call of churches revealed 64 members from 14 churches with 3 visitors 
for a total present of 67. 

58. Dr. Godwin offered thanks to the churches that hosted the annual meeting. He 
thanked them for their hospitality and for the meals they provided. 

59. Dr. Godwin called the association into a session of business. 

60. Page 28 of the Book of Reports was corrected to show the Nominations Commit- 
tee to be: Tommy Pittman, Chairman: Lester Murphey, Ed Hensley, Wanda 
Robertson, Mrs. Carolyn Glenn, Mrs. Donald Young. The Book of Reports was 
adopted with the changes. 

61. Dr. Godwin read the Hospitality Committee Report. It was adopted as read. 

62. Dr. Godwin stated that constitutional changes could not be voted on because 
they were not presented at yesterday's meeting, but felt that since the constitution did 
not have guidelines for electing a Director of Missions, that we establish some way. 

Lee Dulaney made the motion that the Nominating Committee name a special 
committee of five (5) members for the approval of the Executive Committee, whose 
purpose will be to fill the vacancy of Director of Missions. This committee shall bring 
one person at a time before the Executive Committee for consideration, and no 
nomination shall be made except that of the special committee. Election shall be 
made by ballot, with an affirmative vote of three-fourths of those present and voting 
necessary for a call. Should the one recommended by the committee fail to receive 
three-fourths vote, the committee will be instructed to seek out another nominee for 
the office of Director of Missions. Evelyn Pate seconded. After much discussion, 
Nellie Styles called for the vote. Motion carried. 

63. Dr. Godwin asked for nominations for clerk. Evelyn Pate nominated Lavonne 
Murdock. Pam Anglin (I'll remember that Pam) seconded. Cecil Huskins moved the 
nominations cease. Pam Anglin seconded. Motion carried. Lavonne Murdock was 
elected clerk. 

64. Dr. Godwin opened the floor for nominations for Vice-Moderator. Cecil 
Huskins nominated Daniel Whetstine. Lester Murphey seconded. Evelyn Pate moved 
the nominations cease. Nellie Styles seconded. Motion carried. Daniel Whetstine was 
elected Vice-Moderator. 

65. Daniel Whetstine, Vice-Moderator, asked for nominations for Moderator. 
Lester Murphey nominated Dr. Joseph Godwin. Cecil Huskins seconded. Lawrence 
Glenn nominated John Davis. Mr. Davis refused the nomination. Dr. Joseph God- 
win was elected Moderator. 

66. A quartet from Bolens Creek Baptist Church sang "If That Isn't Love." 

67. Dr. Godwin encouraged all Executive Committee members to attend the 
Executive Committee meetings. He stated that he would call a special meeting of the 
Executive Committee to discuss the position of the Director of Missions. 

68. Rev. Daniel Whetstine, Vice-Moderator and pastor of Shoal Creek Baptist 
Church, brought the missions message. He read Luke 24:36-53. A brief summary of 
his message follows: 

Christ taught missions throughout His ministry. Eleven of the twelve disciples 
became missionaries. Christ here in the scriptures told his disciples to become in- 
volved in missions. He told them to begin in Jerusalem - at home. 

There are souls here in our own county that need Christ. We are obligated to these 
people right around us. 

By studying how the disciples prepared for "Jerusalem Missions" we too can learn 
how to prepare. How did they prepare? 1. They prayed for 240 hours. We too will be 
better prepared for missions if we pray. 2. God provided the resources for the 

-17- 



"Jerusalem Missions." The Lord will provide the resources for the job that He wants 
us to do. God provides the same resources today that he provided to the disciples in 
Jerusalem. 

69. Jean Whitson led the congregation in singing "Standing On The Promises." 

70. Leonard Morgan led in the benediction. 

71. The 108th annual meeting of the Yancey Baptist Association came to a close.

Hospitality Committee Report 



The officers, messengers and visitors at the 108th annual session of the Yancey 
Baptist Association express deep and abiding appreciation to the good people of 
Pleasant Grove and Bolens Creek Churches for their hospitality. 

Your welcome was warm and genuine, your food was bountiful and beautiful - in 
quality never surpassed and seldom matched. 

We love you and are pleased to be serving the Lord on the same team with you. 

Respectfully, 
Hospitality Committee 

The Moderator's Report 

During the past associational year, the Moderator has presided over the four con- 
stitutionally mandated Executive Committee meetings. 

He has appointed a Program Committee for the 1986 annual meeting and a 
Nominating Committee to function during 1986-87. 

This Moderator is strongly persuaded that he and the Executive Committee should 
make only minor — or, on the other hand, necessary — decisions for the association. 
This is because the decision making process should have the widest possible par- 
ticipation. After all, the associational business is the association's business. 

The Moderator and his wife visited several churches in the association, gathering 
the impression that our county is rich in heritage and richer in potential. 

What cooperating Baptists can achieve here remains for diligent faith to demon- 
strate and for future generations to see. 

Respectfully, 
Joseph Godwin 



August 1, 1986 

TO: ALL PASTORS 

FROM: LEONARD MORGAN 

After considerable thought & prayer, my family & I feel the need to return to the 
Home Mission Board. 

We will be returning to pioneer mission service beginning September 1, 1986. 
It has been a very rewarding year and this experience will help me in the future. 
My prayers are with each pastor and this association. 

Sunday School Report 

Having completed a successful five year project through the Sunday School's 8.5 by 
'85 enrollment emphasis, we are now embarked on an even greater project, Chal- 
lenge 10/90. This project focuses on Reaching People, Developing Believers and 
Strengthening Missions. Challenge 10/90 N.C. will be the major continuing growth 
emphasis for 1986-90. 

The Sunday School 1985-90 Program Goals are: 

Ten Million enrolled in Bible Study by September 30, 1990 
10,000 Churches with Outreach Bible Study groups 
sponsored by the Sunday School 
-21- 



1,000,000 workers and members prepared 
for evangelistic teaching, witness and ministry 
8,000 new Sunday Schools started, including 
2,000 new ethnic Sunday Schools 
10,000 Churches with Weekly Workers' Meetings 
30,000 Sunday School Leadership Diplomas earned. 

Sunday School goals, programs and activities will focus on the 1986-87 emphasis - 
"The People Challenge: Go . . . Tell . . . Teach." The suggested dates for launching 
a year of Going, Telling and Teaching are September 28-October 5 (Preparation 
Week). 

Some months each year have a special emphasis: 



October '86 Outreach 

December '86 Foreign Missions 

January '87 Bible Study (James) 

March '87 Home Missions 

May '87 Hospital, Retirement Homes, Children's Homes, 

Associational Missions 

June '87 Vacation Bible School 

September '87 State Missions 



Every church and all Sunday School members can be involved in reaching people 
for Bible Study. Saved persons not enrolled in Sunday School need to be reached. 
Those who do not know Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord are lost. These need 
to be enlisted for Bible Study. How true the statement, "While enrolling people in 
Sunday School is not the last step in leading a person to Christ, it can be the first 
step! " Our commission is certain - Go . . . Tell . . . Teach. 

As we face the responsibilities of a new associational year, it is a good time for us to 
resolve to give ourselves to reaching, teaching, witnessing, ministering. This is a time 
to deepen our concern for persons in our midst who do not know Christ as Savior. It is 
a good time for us to recognize that human strength and human plans will not get the 
job done. We must depend on God. 

Now, let me suggest that you study the 1984-'85 and the 1985-'86 record. As you do 
this, let God speak to you.

Vacation Bible School 



Images of Vacation Bible School may include pledges to the American and Chris- 
tian flags and eating cookies and drinking soft drinks on warm summer days. But, 
Vacation Bible School is also a time of concentrated Bible study for all age groups. It 
provides the opportunity to reach people not presently participating in ongoing Bible 
study. This is one reason it is so important for every church to have Vacation Bible 
School. 

This year the Associational VBS Clinic was held May 19th at First Baptist Church. 
Fifty-five people from ten churches attended. I deeply appreciate the following who 
took a day off to attend the State VBS Clinic in March and who taught a conference 
at the Associational VBS Clinic in May: Laura Mae Hilliard, Iva Nell Buckner, 
Niles Howell, Pam Reeves, Wanda Harding, Nellie Styles and Ida Jane Crowder. 
Thank you Leonard Morgan for teaching the General Officers Clinic and Beth 
Joyner for helping with music. I would also like to say a special Thank You to the 
ladies of First Baptist Church who provided and served refreshments at the Associa- 
tional VBS Clinic. 

VBS helps the church reach out, teach the Bible, witness to persons about Christ, 
and minister to persons in Jesus' name. Through its unique design, VBS also leads 
persons to worship, to learn about missions and to practice stewardship of money & 
of life. Truly VBS supports the church in numerous ways to be the people of God in a 
world that needs to learn and respond to the love of God demonstrated through Jesus 
Christ.

Church Training Report 



During our 1986 Church Training year, three children from the West Burnsville 
Church represented our association in the Children's Bible Drill. All three were de- 
clared State Winners. 

Something new was added when three youths, also from the West Burnsville 
Church, represented our association in the District Youth Bible Drill. Two youths 
were winners & represented us in the State Drill. We had one winner in the State 



Let us plan now for more of our children and youth to participate in these Bible 
Drills during the coming year. 

We were again actively involved in the Togo, Africa Project. Nat Howell made 
two trips to Togo this year. He worked along with other volunteers from North Caro- 
lina. Much was accomplished and a great blessing received from the weeks spent 
working in Togo. The challenge to become more involved in World Missions is 
greater now than ever before. 

Church Training is probably the most overlooked hidden asset in a great many of 
our churches & obsolete in some. We have in Church Training the perfect vehicle for 
training every leader in every area of the total church program. Why not make use of 
the excellent tools God has made available to us & train every leader and at the same 
time, make Church Training not only more interesting but necessary in the lives of 
our people. 



As we enter a new year - Let us take a look backward. Have we been challenged to 
greater service? Have we renewed our commitment? 

We met for Key Leadership with Cane River Baptist Church. The meeting was 
well attended. 

Our annual meeting was held in June. We met with Bolens Creek Church. Miss 
Nancy Curtis, our State WMU Director, brought a very challenging message. Before 
the meeting the Associational WMU Officers met with her at the Sizzling Steak 
House for an hour of fellowship and an enjoyable meeting. She was presented with 
one of our cookbooks, the cookbooks being a project for the year. We plan to use the 
proceeds for mission projects. 

One of Satan's greatest tools is discouragement. Let's not look back, but forward. 
Our WMU emphasis for 86-87 is "Gifted to Serve, Called to Act." To do this we need: 
More hands to work, more voices to teach, more hearts and minds to pray, more 
people to go. We must grow 25% each year until 1988.

Music 



"Let us Make a Joyful Noise Unto The Lord." We are commanded by Our Lord to 
make a joyful noise and to sing praises unto Him. Only when our hearts are right 
with Him and our lives dedicated to Him, can we make a difference in our songs of 
praises. As we start a new associational year, let us dedicate our lives and voices to 
Him for His uplifting. Our annual Christmas Carol Sing was held this year. This was 
a VERY SPECIAL TIME for those who attended as we celebrated our Christ's birth. 
Let us work hard this year to make music in our churches an important part of our 
worship service.

Associational Music Director 

Youth Report 

Youth is classified by Baptists as the years between 12-19. Remember those years?? 
(not children and not yet adults). Decisions that will affect the rest of their lives are 
being made at a time when they aren't even sure who they are. 

How can we help? How can we make Jesus real to them? How can we make them 
understand that being a Christian is a way of life and not just a title for spectators at 
Sunday morning worship? 

We, the Youth Committee, have tried to interlace our ideals & faith with social ac- 
tivities for the youth. In early October we had our third annual "leaf ride." Three 
truck loads of young people and eight adults shared games, music & laughter on a 
crisp fall evening, complete with bonfire and "s'mors." First Baptist Church invited 
us to join their Trick or Treat for Reconciliation House on Halloween night. We 
made a splash in May with a trip to the YWCA pool in Asheville. After pizza, we 
closed out that evening with a miniature golf game. A family day picnic, before 
school starts, is still in the planning. 

As Jesus ministered, He did not go into a building and wait for people to come to 
Him. He went to their work, to their celebrations, into their homes and into their 
lives. By following Jesus' example and getting personally involved with our Youth, 
on their territory, we have the opportunity to share our love, our values and our 
Lord. 

In Ecclesiastes 3:1 and 4, the Bible says, "To everything there is a season, and a 
time to every purpose under the heaven; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time 
to mourn, and a time to dance." This is the season for our Youth to dance, but if we 
stay close enough maybe they'll let us HELP them choose the music. 

Respectfully submitted by Linda Griffith 
Youth Committee Chairman

Building Committee Report 

The Building Committee met two times during the year to check out property that 
was made available to the committee to consider buying for a building site for our 
new office. The first offer was a good offer, but the committee felt that the lots were 
not large enough for the type of building we need and still have enough parking 
spaces. 

The second offer was not a very good location and was too much money. 

Our treasurer reports at this time, we have $11,533.08 in the bank. If someone in 
or near Burnsville has a good location for a new building with enough parking space 
(approx. Vz to 1 acre), that they will sell or if someone would like to donate this land 
our association would be forever grateful.

Ckx>perative Program Report 

The churches that are really cooperating as an association and with the Conven- 
tion demonstrate good stewardship, and some show signs of improving. 

What we need most are church leaders who recognize the value of the Cooperative 
Program, who are personally committed to it, and who will lead honest, dedicated 
church members to participate in our missions effort through the Cooperative Pro- 
gram. 

A clear indication of the pastor's personal commitment to the Cooperative Program 
is shown by the church's participation in it. 

I urge each church to give through the Cooperative Program with a designated 
percentage o f the total undesignated offering. 

Respectfully, 
Joseph Godwin, Chairman

Evangelism Report 

There are many kinds of Evangelism: Revival Evangelism, Bus Evangelism, Sun- 
day School Evangelism, Crusade Evangelism, Visitation Evangelism, Lifestyle Evan- 
gelism plus others. 

They are all important because people are involved & because of the commands of 
God. -28- 




29- 




-30- 



Let me say a word about Lifestyle Evangelism. Someone has suggested that only 
40% of the population will attend religious services. Most of the other kinds of evan- 
gelism are "come & hear" approaches. Sixty percent will not come. How will they be 
reached? They will be reached by those of us who witness as we go, wherever we go. 

At the time this report is being written (July 26 due July 28) all of the church let- 
ters are not in, but the letters in reveal that 16 churches reported 29 baptisms. These 
same churches reported 41 baptisms last year. We need to remember "our first love," 



and get on with the business of the Lord.

be conducted. 

The Executive Committee met at the associational office on March 3, 1986 at 7:00 
P.M. This meeting was postponed from January due to snow. The committee voted to 
purchase six more chairs for the office.

Historian Report 

On June 13th the 108th year of the Yancey Baptist Association ended. The words 
of James E. Salk speak to our hearts at this point, "I feel that the greatest reward for 
work done is the opportunity to do more." We are reminded that our area is a "field 
white unto harvest." 

Mr. Nat Howell spent 2 months this year (February 8c June), in Togo, Africa as a 
Mission Volunteer. Individual churches and the state convention made it possible for 
him to heed God's call, to realize a desire of his heart, and to be a part of what 
Southern Baptists are doing in this part of God's world. His testimony includes the 
idea that together Southern Baptists are involved in a great work as they minister to 
the total person in more than one hundred countries. 

A cookbook, "Treasured Mountain Recipes," was prepared by the women of the 
association. Sales have been good. The profit will go to missions. 

There were three state winners in the Children's Bible Drill. They were LeAnn 
Griffin, Susan Hullett & Joseph Willis. Kevin Hulett was recognized as a church 
winner, Shannon Harding an associational winner, Chris Presnell an area winner, 
and Susan Crout a state winner in the Youth Bible Drill. These participants are 
members of the West Burnsville Baptist Church. 

A new year is before us. Now is the time to resolve that this year we will move on- 
ward & upward.

Togo, Africa 

With about a year to go, the "TOGO PARTNERS IN WHOLENESS PROJECT" 
is progressing in a great way. 

My thanks go to all in the association who have made my participation in this proj- 
ect possible. I believe that everyone who gave to any of our mission offerings or 
prayed for the mission efforts, has as much a part in this project as the volunteers. 
Without the cooperating support of many individuals and churches, this kind of 
project wouldn't be possible. 

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, the World Hunger Offering, and the 
Cooperative Program Funds all come into focus on this project. Lottie Moon funds 
paid for the missionary homes & some vehicles. Operating funds are provided by the 
Cooperative Program. Machinery such as a bulldozer, tractor, Pan, and bridge 
materials are provided by World Hunger Funds. 

Many people are already being blessed by this mission ministry. People now and 
for many generations to come have a Christian witness, clean water to drink, more 



food because of the water ponds, and better transportation because of the bridge that 
is now finished. A pharmacy is well under construction, also health classes are being 
conducted. 

There are many churches and preaching points established. At the end of June 
there had been 800 baptisms in the area, 63 wells drilled, 7 water ponds finished, also 
the bridge (a very large project) was finished. 

From a personal point of view, one goes to help and be a blessing to others but 
always receives more than one can possibly give. 

I have been blessed by being able to participate in this project on three separate oc- 
casions. There is a very deep satisfaction in serving on this Togo project !

Seminary Extension Report 

The Seminary Extension Report for 1985-86 is as follows. We scheduled two classes 
for the fall of 1985. One was Leadership and the other was Hebrews. We had twelve 
people to complete the Leadership Course and the Study of Hebrews did not make. 
No classes were planned for the spring of 1986. There is an excellent course offered 
new this fall especially for pastors. It is Clinical Pastoral Training and will be avail- 
able this fall upon request. There must be a desire to better equip ourselves to serve in 
His Kingdom.

Baptist Children's Homes' Annual Report 

The Centennial Year for the Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina was con- 
cluded with an exciting, informative and inspiring day on November 11, 1985. The 
exciting words of Dr. Blackwell, in behalf of our staff, children and trustees, re- 
newed the commitment to continue fulfilling the mission and broad purpose of this 
child care ministry. Those words still ring in the ears of those present for this oc- 
casion. 

The mission is to care for dependent, neglected, homeless and troubled children; 
unwed mothers and their children; and the rendering of related services to the 
relatives. Services are directed toward the preservation, conservation and rehabili- 
tation of families to avoid, wherever possible, the placement of the child away from 
home. 

In our one hundredth and first year of child care, more than 1,500 children were 
served. From this group of children/youth, many had no religious affiliation when 
admitted to our care. Our pastors baptized more than twenty-five youth into the 
fellowship of the local church. 

The New Homes & Offering, approved by the Convention last November, claimed 
the attention of our staff during the first five months of 1986. The offering was re- 
ceived in May with fifty percent of that which was received going to the Children's 
Homes, twenty-five percent to the Hospital and twenty-five percent to the Retire- 
ment Homes. The goal was $1.6 million. We encourage you to help promote the new 
offering in your church during May 1987. 

Update/ Western Area: 

The happy news from the west is that construction has begun on the Moody Farm 
cottage, located in the Iotla Valley of Macon County. 

Mary Lewis and Gary Bruin, experienced child care workers on the Mills Home 
staff for nine years, have accepted the responsibility of giving leadership as directors 
of the Moody Farm Ministries. „ 



Special appreciation is expressed to our Western Area child care and social workers 
who serve so faithfully at our Maternity Home in Asheville, the Thermal Belt Youth 
Shelter in Forest City and the Broyhill Home in Clyde/ Waynesville. These facilities 
have operated at near capacity throughout the year. The children served have 
mostly been those who call for extra measures of strength, wisdom and love. The 
words, "Care Finds a Way," truly apply to these wonderful servants of our Lord.

The American Bible Society 

The American Bible Society plans to distribute, in Nicaragua alone, over 85% 
more Bibles and New Testaments this year than last year. In fact, in all the Central 
American countries — people by the tens of thousands are asking for Scriptures. 

Because of your support of the American Bible Society in the past, our workers in 
Central America have been able to provide copies of God's Word to thousands of 
people who are searching desperately for comfort, stability and peace in their lives. A 
peace only God through His Word can provide. 

Last year, friends of the Bible Society — including you — helped provide huge 
quantities of Scripture throughout the region. To give you an idea of how your gifts 
were used, here are a few of the many Scripture outreach programs successfully com- 
pleted by our workers in Central America: 55,000 free Gospel Portions and New 
Reader Scriptures to churches in Nicaragua for use in rural and troubled areas, 
— 60,000 Scripture Selections for school children in Guatemala, — funding for 
"Operation Metropolis" in El Salvador - an ongoing ministry aimed at reaching 
everyone in this troubled country - in hospitals, schools, factories, homes — with the 
Word of God. 

Let us all rejoice in the "Good News" . . . and thank you for helping to make it 
possible. Now, in 1986, their need is even greater, we must not slow down in our ef- 
forts there and around the world.

Christian Action League of North Carolina 
1986 Annual Report 

If Christianity is authentic, then, it must be reflected in the daily walk of the 
followers of Jesus Christ. 

Helping Christians to apply the moral demands of the Good News of Jesus Christ 
remains the top priority of the Christian Action League. 

There is much to rejoice about what has occurred in the last 12 months, but it is 
also a time to renew our efforts for new battles on the horizon. 

I. OBSCENITY: The state's new Comprehensive Obscenity and Child Protec- 
tion Act has been met with unusual success. Some 12 months ago, law enforcement 
officials stated that North Carolina had some 750 hard core porno outlets making our 
state the nation's "smut" capital. Today, only about 150 remain in operation and 
most of these are facing porno charges with court cases pending. 

For all practical purposes, convenience stores and other retail establishments have 

-34- 



removed sexually oriented publications such as PLAYBOY, HUSTLER, PENT- 
HOUSE, etc. Others have placed the material behind the counter or behind 
"blinder" racks where they are not accessible to minors. 

Video stores have cleaned their shelves of sexually explicit materials rather than 
face prosecution. 

Cable porn programs like the Playboy Channel have been discontinued in com- 
munities such as Hickory, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Durham, etc. 

Indictments have been brought against ADAM & EVE - the largest porno distribu- 
tor in the Southeast, located in Orange County. 

The battle is not over for the cause of decency. The pornography industry and its 
sympathizers are already raising funds and seeking to build support to get our state's 
new obscenity law "watered down" in the 1987 legislature. 

II. ALCOHOL (Liquor-Beer-Wine): The League remains the only organization 
in North Carolina providing assistance to communities involved in sighting our num- 
ber one addicting drug. Referendums have been defeated in the following areas: 

1. Scotland County defeated liquor-by-the-drink; 

2. Black Mountain defeated liquor-by-the-drink; 

3. Concord defeated liquor-by-the-drink; 

4. Manteo defeated liquor-by-the-drink; 

5. Rowan County defeated liquor-by-the-drink; 

6. Wayne County defeated liquor-by-the-drink; 

7. Pasquotank County defeated liquor-by-the-drink; 

8. Old Fort defeated beer-wine sales; and 

9. King defeated an ABC liquor store vote. 

These victories were the result of strong, aggressive leadership on the part of 
caring people. 

III. GAMBLING: In 1987, the church will probably face its strongest challenge 
yet from the gambling industry. 

Pro-lottery forces have already stated that they will be back before the 1987 legisla- 
ture with an all-out effort to secure a statewide lottery. 

Pari-mutuel gambling forces have now come on the scene. A statewide organiza- 
tion operating under the name, CAROLINA SPORTS ASSOCIATION, with offices 
in High Point are pushing this cause. Rufus Edmisten, the state's former Attorney- 
General, has been employed by the gambling forces to assist in their drive for pari- 
mutuel gambling. This group is publishing a newspaper, Sporting Journal, that is 
being sent to key business and industrial leaders throughout North Carolina to enlist 
supporters. Fund raising efforts are also underway. A speaker's bureau has been 
formed providing programs for civic and community groups on behalf of the 
gambling cause. 

What will be the outcome of both efforts? Basically, the decision will be made in 
the November, 1986 General Election. If a few more pro-gambling legislators win 
seats in the legislature, the war is over. In the 1985 session, the lottery went down to 
defeat with a tie vote. That is how close the issue already is in our state. 

Billy Sunday used to say: "The only thing worse than an empty voting booth is an 
empty head in the voting booth." 

The position for the 1987 North Carolina House and Senate candidates on the 
gambling issues must be obtained and shared with the Christian community so voters 
will be informed when ballots are marked. 

Plato said: "The price that good people pay for not being involved in politics is to 
be governed by people worse than themselves."

Report of the Education Commission 
to the Southern Baptist Convention 

1985-86 

ARTHUR L. WALKER, JR., Executive Director-Treasurer 

One thousand educational and religious leaders were invited to participate in the 
National Congress on Leadership in the 21st Century held in Gatlinburg, Ten- 
nessee, June 4-7, 1986. These leaders discussed the changes in the demands for and on 
leaders in our society and churches as they will be experienced in the new century. 
The pressures on institutions of Christian higher education to participate in pro- 
ducing leaders who understand and contribute to the answers raised by the new 
demand were also explored. 

The Southern Baptist commitment to introduce Christian truth into every area of 
life has made an emphasis on leadership incumbent on the educational institutions 
sponsored and supported by the various entities of Southern Baptist life. This has 
meant that it is important for the Education Commission to offer leadership in this 
significant area of responsibility. Leaders from every area of our national life were 
invited to participate in the recent significant Congress outlining the opportunity 
and the responsibility faced by Christian higher education in the years to come. The 
distinctives of Christian leadership were discussed at length as the educational 
leaders attempted to understand the responsibility which would be theirs in pre- 
paring for the new century. Part of the emphasis of this Congress was also the restudy 
of the reasons for Christian higher education and the role which education plays in 
Bold Mission outreach as well as in the undergirding of those individuals who seek to 
be obedient to the clear intent of the Scripture in carrying out a teaching ministry. 
The case statement which was developed for Southern Baptist higher education 
emphasized that in a society where technology and its influence on philosophical 
concerns were so dominant that there is a need for a renewed emphasis on the value 
of persons as taught in the Gospel of Jesus Christ as well as the transmission of the 
culture of Christian societies and an emphasis upon the importance of individual ex- 
perience of the Christian religion. 

This Congress placed an unusual emphasis on the unique and distinctive role and 
mission of Christian higher education in preparing those individuals who under- 
stand the emphases of Christian leadership. 

The Education Commission, in its emphasis upon equipping for leadership, recog- 
nizes the Bold Mission task which all educational institutions of state conventions 
and of the Southern Baptist Convention face in the fulfillment of their mission. 

Support. — The 17 state conventions sponsoring schools and the Southern Baptist 
Convention increased their 1985 support to the schools by $2,302,671 for a total of 
$82,972,668. Of this amount, $851,481 was given as an addition to endowment funds. 
Donations, gifts, and grants totaling $116,300,572 showed a decrease of $3,432,297. 
Endowment funds amounted to $992,853,228; property was valued at $1,366,895,258, 
making assets total $2,359,748,486. This was an increase of $273,078,303. Endowment 
increased by $178,252,041 and property value by $94,826,262. 

Church Vocation Volunteers. — Church vocation volunteers totaled 21,385 for 
1985-86. 

PROGRAM REPORT 

The Program of Christian Higher Education Leadership 

Educational institutions sponsored by state conventions and the Southern Baptist 
Convention have always had a significant part in preparing individuals to carry out 
the Convention's mission enterprise. The Education Commission, charged with the 
directive to foster and encourage opportunities for expanding the role of Christian 
higher education in missions, continues its emphasis upon the recruitment and 
training of mission volunteers . -3 6- 



The Education Commission administers funds for four scholarships. The Doro- 
thea Van Deusen Opdyke Scholarships are offered to individuals in undergraduate 
college programs who are originally from mountain areas of the nation. The 
Robertson and Farmer Loan Programs provide funds to faculty members in Baptist 
institutions who are attempting to update their degrees and expand their educational 
experience. The provisions of the Hester Scholarship are similar to those of the 
Robertson and Farmer funds. 

During the past year the Education Commission has continued to conduct studies 
in course offerings at the various colleges, the comparative percentage distribution of 
Cooperative Program funds to Baptist schools by the sponsoring state convention, 
student enrollment and the number of church vocation students at the Baptist edu- 
cational institutions. 

The Education Commission continues to emphasize the role of its placement registry 
service which is provided for the Baptist institutions in seeking prospective Baptist 
faculty and staff. The number of requests for information about prospective faculty 
members continues to grow each year. 

Another ongoing emphasis of the Education Commission is the recruitment of 
students for Christian service. Through annual admissions workshops, publication 
of brochures on career choices, communication through Baptist state papers and 
Convention periodicals, the Education Commission endeavors to improve the recruit- 
ment of students in our Baptist schools. The Southern Baptist Educator continues to 
be an instrument to present pertinent materials to the leadership in Southern Bap- 
tist educational life. 

The annual observance of Baptist Seminary, College and School Day in February is 
a major promotional effort to inform Southern Baptist churches of the uniqueness of 
our Baptist institutions. 

During the current year the Education Commission has been involved in a study of 
the utilization of trained ministers. Curriculum articulation between Southern Bap- 
tist colleges and universities and the six theological seminaries of the Convention has 
also been a major effort of the Education Commission. 

The staff of the Education Commission and representatives of the Baptist 
seminaries, universities and colleges continue to emphasize the role of Southern 
Baptist commitment to mission concerns through participation in church-related 
and independent higher education concerns throughout the nation. 

Campus Ministries 

North Carolina Baptists have some form of ministry on forty-seven college or 
university campuses across the state. A growing number of churches are also finding 
creative and significant ways to minister with students. 

The Convention employs eight persons with primary responsibility for ministry in 
a specific university setting. We join with Baptist colleges in funding campus 
ministries in our seven schools, and we join other Christian groups in providing 
full-time ministers on two other campuses. In each of these settings our ministers 
work with student groups such as BSU, cooperate with university personnel in service 
to the institution, offer help to faculty and staff in personal and professional con- 
cerns and seek for ways of helping people on the campus work more closely with area 
churches. 

During the 1985-86 school year students involved in Baptist Student Unions and on 
Baptist campuses pledged and raised about $50,000 for missions and ministry all 
around the world. A total of 150 collegians were trained in a week-long orientation 
period or are working under the direction of some department within the Baptist 
State Convention. New programs included semester service in Associational and 
related ministries for a dozen students, a summer internship in ministry with the 

-37- 



Baptist Joint Committee, and the sponsoring of a resource team of three students 
trained and utilized by youth ministers and Associational leaders across the state. 

The first "graduates" of our unique Campus Ministry Associate in Missions and 
Ministry program in Charlotte, Joy and Chris Gamble, were appointed and are 
serving as student evangelists in Taiwan under our Foreign Mission Board. Mark 
and Stacey Pennington are the 1985-87 ministers in this program, which seeks to serve 
in Charlotte and prepare persons for careers in student ministry on the mission field. 

Work with volunteer ministries in several locations is continuing to develop as lay 
people, church staff members, college faculty persons and Associational staff lead out 
in the exciting ministry. Convention staff provides consultation and encouragement. 
This spring, five student leaders for these BSU's joined 13 others in a week of special 
training at the Sunday School Board. North Carolina's delegation of 18 was the 
largest (and, we feel, outstanding) as students from across the nation were involved in 
this leadership program. 

Special conferences for international students, campus evangelism training and 
Black Christian collegians were offered during the school year. Staff, volunteers and 
student leaders planned and guided these events. A conference for High School 
Seniors, a leadership conference and a fall Baptist Student Convention involved over 
a thousand young people in Christian growth and challenge to stewardship of life. 

Teams of students from BSU's and Baptist campuses all across the state led wor- 
ship, planned youth revivals, sang or ministered through puppetry or clowning in 
hundreds of North Carolina churches. Students, under the leadership of ministers 
employed by your Cooperative Program dollars, are growing and sharing their faith 
in many ways because you care enough to provide Baptist Campus Ministry! On 
behalf of these who, in God's power, are our future, thank you !

Associational Report 
Baptist Retirement Homes 

In recognition of the increased proportion of adults now 65 or older, the Baptist 
Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc., has sought to create a broader awareness 
of its services across the state. Implementing state-of-the-art communication tech- 
niques through use of the Biblical Recorder, local newspapers and direct contacts, 
the Homes is effectively making itself known to greater numbers of Senior Adults and 
to a concerned and responsive denominational community. 

The leadership of the Baptist Retirement Homes is addressing major changes 
which suggest a need for an adjustment of services. The sheer size of the Senior Adult 
population in the next decade is expected to require a significant expansion of existing 
services. Already consideration is being given to the construction of Continuing Care 
Communities in Asheville and Charlotte and to the renovation of the campus in 
Winston -Salem . 

With extended longevity, the Baptist Retirement Homes anticipates ministering to 
Senior Adults who will live longer and healthier lives. More choices need to be avail- 
able to these individuals as they experience added years of activity. Planning has 
begun to move beyond the standard services now available to consider additional 
possibilities such as home delivery of health services. 

While the past year has brought a forward look at the direction of retirement care, 
attention has also been directed toward improvement of existing services. The fol- 
lowing facts and figures highlight the achievements of the Baptist Retirement Homes 
from August, 1985 through June, 1986: 

- Sound financial management again eliminated the need to increase residential 
fees. 

- Over $900,000 of benevolent care was provided to residents. 

-38- 



- Of a projected 3.4 million dollar budget, the Cooperative Program and Homes & 
Hospital Offering provided $785,000. 

- Over 40 new residents were admitted to the Homes and Nursing Care. 

- Construction and renovation of seven new housing units was completed in Wil- 
low Cove on the Winston-Salem campus. 

- Bill Stillerman became the new President of the Homes. 

- Jack Hoyle was appointed Vice-President in Charge of Administration. 

- Carolyn Bunting was appointed Assistant to the President for Admissions. 

- Jim Saul was appointed Assistant to the President for Personnel. 

- Don Peiffer was appointed Assistant to the President for Business Affairs. 

- A video tape, "Not An Ordinary Person," produced by the Homes in 1985, won 
the M. E. Dodd Award for Video and Film Productions. 

- Residential and apartment living remain available. Requests should be made 
through the Assistant to the President for Admissions. 

Under the focused and energetic leadership of Bill Stillerman, President of the 
Homes since November, 1985, the fine tradition initiated by past Presidents will con- 
tinue. Yet, the Trustees and Administrative Staff of the Baptist Retirement Homes 
believe the participation of North Carolina Baptists to be critical for the successful 
growth of the Homes. By remaining sensitive to retirement care issues and by staying 
informed and supportive of services offered by the Retirement Homes, North 
Carolina Baptists can help assure a system of services adequate to the growing de- 
mand. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Carolyn Bunting 
Assistant to the President for Admissions 

The Biblical Recorder 

Report to the Associations - 1986 

In a year that has been marked by tragedy, stress and disappointment, the people of 
God who call themselves North Carolina Baptists continue to witness and minister to 
our ever growing and changing state. The Biblical Recorder is a vital part of that 
Baptist family and as the official newsjournal of the denomination, it has enjoyed a 
stable and wholesome year of ministry at the side of hundreds of thousands of our 
people. 

Readership of the paper is high. Comments, letters and other communications 
with the Recorder indicate Baptists read the paper and depend upon it for correct 
and vital information about the work we do together. That was the purpose of the 
paper when it was founded in 1833 and it remains a more important ministry now 
than even then. 

Tar Heel Baptists are on the threshold of the greatest opportunity we have ever 
been given by God for witness and ministry in our state. That does not mean it will be 
easy. The minority status of Christians — fewer persons in North Carolina are mem- 
bers of any church than are not — and the rising spirit of secularism makes our task 
more difficult but at the same time much more imperative than ever. We must not 
fail. 

Well-informed Baptists are more effective Baptists. The Recorder welcomes its 
assignment in the task of sharing the Good News of Christ. This year, we had a tre- 
mendous opportunity through the "Good News America, God Love You" revivals 
and the paper was on the job, promoting and reporting on the crusades. As always, 
the Recorder will seek to inform, indoctrinate, enlist, inspire and provide a forum 
for Baptist thought and action as we work together to achieve God's purpose for us. 

Despite a tremendous increase ($96,000) in the cost of second-class postage during

1986, s ubscription rates will not be raised for the fifth consecutive year. Many of the 
other major state Baptist papers such as the Recorder have already found it necessary 
to raise their rates, but the directors of our paper have been working with the editor 
to find a way to avoid any increase so that our churches and individuals can con- 
tinue to get the paper at the lowest possible cost. 

The rates are: Church Budget Plan, $5.00 per subscription for every resident 
family; Club Plan (four or more), $6.00; and Individuals, $7.00. If your church does 
not have the Every Family Plan, special introductory offers are available. Please

North Carolina Baptist College Report - 1986

1887 1848 1905 1856 

MEREDITH WAKE FOREST WINGATE 

1891 1834 1895 



North Carolina is a recognized leader in Christian higher education. Baptists have 
established and supported seven colleges for a cumulative total of 786 years. Leaders 
who formed the Baptist State Convention in 1830 did so with founding a college in 
mind. Baptists and their colleges have grown up together in North Carolina. The 
histories of the Convention, the churches and the colleges are inseparably inter- 
twined. 

The "roll call" of colleges, and a brief mention of current items of interest and 
concern, are listed for the benfit of the associations: 

CAMPBELL - During 1986, there is a special observance of the centennial year, 
using as a theme "A Century of Vision and Service." The new School of Pharmacy 
will open in the fall, and a School of Education has been established for graduate 
studies. Programs are offered in Goldsboro, Rocky Mount, Raleigh, Fort Bragg, 
Sanford, and in Wales and Malaysia. 

CHOWAN - Enjoys a national reputation as a two-year institution of high quality. 
President Bruce E. Whitaker was recently named as one of the 17 most effective chief 
college administrators in the nation. Chowan is engaged in a four million dollar 
campaign for additional student aid, scholarship assistance and program support. 

GARDNER-WEBB - On May 31, 1986, Dr. Craven E. Williams completed his 
tenure as president, begun in July, 1976. On June 1, Dr. M. Christopher White, Vice 
President of Elon College, became the 10th president of Gardner-Webb. Included 
in its many educational programs are assistance for deaf and blind students who wish 
to earn a college degree. 

MARS HILL - A comprehensive revision of the General Studies curriculum, to be 
implemented in the fall of 1987, includes statements of convictions by the faculty. 
Included in these are the centrality of Christian faith, morals and purposeful life, 
responsible citizenship and the value of work. Scholarships to attract superior stu- 
dents continue to be a major emphasis. 



MEREDITH - "Thorough instruction" and "culture made perfect through the 
religion of Jesus Christ" are central to the college mission. Extensive studies during 
1986 resulted in a reaffirmation of Meredith's commitment to education for women 
in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Construction of the Gaddy-Hamrick 
Art Center was begun in June. 

WAKE FOREST - Conversations continue between Convention leaders and uni- 
versity trustees to clarify the basis for a continuing relationship. Founded in 1834 by 
North Carolina Baptists, Wake Forest is acknowledged as a superior university 
among church-related schools in the nation. 

WING ATE - Looking toward its one hundredth anniversity jn 1995, the college 
has entered a 10-year, 30 million dollar "Second Century: Vision for Excellence" 
campaign. Numerous building, renovation and beautification projects are planned, 
in addition to library expansion, faculty support and student financial aid.

BAPTIST STUDENTS AND BAPTIST COLLEGES BELONG TOGETHER 

The Christian Life Commission Report 

The Christian Life Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention 
901 Commerce, Number 550, Nashville, Tennessee 37203 
Foy Valentine, Executive Director 

The Christian Life Commission is grateful for another year marked by signifi- 
cant gains in several areas of its ministry on behalf of Southern Baptists. A wide 
range of program activities have helped Baptists practice Christian ethics in family 
life, race relations, citizenships, daily work, and numerous moral concerns. The 
agency has had many opportunities to work with other Southern Baptist agencies, 
thereby increasing its usefulness to Southern Baptist churches and people. 

A close and effective working relationship has been maintained with Christian 
Life Committees in associations and in local churches. Christian Life Committees in 
churches now number a record 1,525. Working relationships with state Baptist con- 
ventions have been strengthened. This includes state conventions with full-time 
workers with state Christian Life Commissions (or the equivalent) and others with ac- 
tive Christian Life Committees without full-time paid workers. 

The Commission has provided support materials for special emphasis days related 
to ethics on the Southern Baptist calendar. Bible-based themes, articles and art work 
accompany the copy related to sanctity of human life, race relations, Christian citi- 
zenship, peace with justice, and world hunger. 

A national seminar dealt with "Applying the Gospel in the Local Church," in 1985 
and on "Recovering Moral Values" in 1986. Other conferences related to applied 
Christianity dealt with topics such as moral problems and youth, gambling, hunger, 
apartheid, and peace with justice while still other conferences focused on training 
and strategy. 

The cause of applied Christianity was expanded through the production and 
distribution of literature, study guides, audio and videotapes, and other resources. A 
new "Help for Families" series included four new videotapes and fifteen new or up- 
dated pamphlets. The new videotapes deal with pornography, divorce, television, 
and changing roles in marriage. 

The Christian Life Commission has the primary responsibility for education and 
action related to hunger. Wide distribution of the 1985-1986 Hunger Awareness/ Ac - 
tion Guide h elped Southern Baptists to reach a new high in their gifts for hunger re- 
lief. Hunger gifts for 1985 totaled $11,830,146. The Foreign Mission Board received 
$10,625,897 for hunger ministries abroad and $1,204,249 went to the Home Mission 
Board for domestic hunger. -41- 



The Commission's primary publication in support of applied Christianity is 
LIGHT. During the past year circulation topped 18,000, and there has been excep- 
tionally good response and support from a wide cross section of Light readers. 

In reviewing the past year, the Christian Life Commission is encouraged and faces 
the future with faith, hope, and renewed commitment. 

Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary 

Fort Worth, Texas 

SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION 
Drew J. Gunnells, Chairman of the Board of Trustees 
Russell H. Dilday, Seminary President 

In its 78th year, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is preparing 5,070 
men and women for ministry, while planning for the needs of the 1990s. 

Southwestern, the largest seminary in the world, is this year training 4,071 men 
and 999 women in schools of theology, religious education and church music. While 
4,427 of those students study on the main campus, another 643 train at South- 
western's three off -campus centers and Spanish-language component. 

Currently, students study under 202 faculty members, including 102 full-time 
teachers and 100 supplementary instructors. New faculty additions include Dan 
Clement, instructor of psycholgy and counseling; Dan Crawford, assistant professor 
of evangelism and missions/director of evangelism and missions practica; Douglas 
Dickens, assistant professor of pastoral ministry; James Heflin, associate professor of 
preaching; David Robinson, assistant professor of voice; James Walter, associate 
professor of adult education. 

This year, the Cooperative Program provided $7 million of Southwestern 's $16.9 
million budget. The Cooperative Program and donors who gave above the tithe con- 
tinued to make quality theological education available for a fraction of the cost non- 
Southern Baptist schools charge. 

Needs of the future are being met through Upward 90, Southwestern 's five-year 
strategic plan for ministry in the 1990s. Goals currently being met include extensive 
computerization of faculty and staff offices, renovation of classroom space, energy 
conservation installations, increasing endowment, curriculum evaluation and ex- 
pansion of the public affairs and student affairs divisions. 

Upward 90, a $50 million project, calls for enhancing every area of seminary life. 
By 1990, four buildings will have been renovated and a conference center con- 
structed, academic programs will be better related to current needs of churches, and 
personal student development will be heightened. 

Additional accomplishments of the past year include: 

— beginning the Chair of Prayer and Spiritual Formation; 

— adding a doctoral major in evangelism; 

— designing 28 new courses; 

— conducting 47 continuing education courses; 

— expanding the Southwestern Journal of Theology to three issues per year; 

— naming James Bensen dean of academic affairs at Hispanic Baptist Seminary; 

— welcoming more than 3,000 alumni and guests to the seminary's second-ever 
homecoming; 

— sponsoring eight missions awareness events with more than 1,000 participants.

North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc. Report 



The purpose and objective of the Baptist Foundation has been, from the date of its 
incorporation and by the terms of its charter, to assist individual Baptists to find ways 
of continuing their support of all Baptist causes - institutions, agencies, mission 
causes - with estate and deferred gifts. As a result, trust funds are now administered 
which benefit local churches, associations, specific mission objects and offerings, and 
every agency, school, and institution supported by Baptists. 

In 1985, North Carolina Baptists placed over one million dollars in new trust 
agreements with the Foundation, making provision for the perpetual support of 
practically every Baptist cause. Endowment of Cooperative Program was a primary 
trust designation. 

It is now possible through the Foundation for each Baptist to "Give it Twice," 
once to family, then to Kingdom causes. Through properly constructed trusts and 
Wills, family members and friends can receive from one's estate, over a period of 
years, an amount exactly equal to, or even greater than the estate portion they would 
normally receive through an ordinary estate distribution. With the "Give it Twice" 
plan, after the family receives their portion, the entire estate principal is still intact, 
with the income from the entire estate available for Christian causes - forever. If 
giving is exciting for the Christian, giving it twice is surely twice as exciting! 

An indirect, but profound benefit of Foundation services to the local church has 
been the enhancement of individual stewardship growth and commitment. In nearly 
every instance, those we elect to commit to Kingdom use a portion of their estate assets, 
are during their lifetime more committed stewards. They enjoy their giving, and this 
happy, conscious stewardship dedication must be a profit for the church. 

The Foundation seeks to inform Baptist people of: 

1 . Their responsibility as stewards to make provisions for the future use of their re- 
sources. 

2. The critical need experienced by all Baptist causes for endowment support - the 
ongoing, assured support of those who support them now. 

3. Ways by which these realities may be met and accomplished. 

4. Counsel in wise decisions for endowing any Baptist cause - for instance, the 
Foundation may discourage a trust for a cemetery fund if the church already re- 
ceives more funds than are needed to maintain that cemetery. 

Specifically, the local church may be benefitted in these ways: 

1. Members are encouraged to name local church in their Wills. A per cent of the 
estate is usually preferred, rather than a dollar amount. 

2. The church may receive real estate in a Life Estate agreement. The individual 
deeds to the church, certain property, or a portion of such property, main- 
taining all rights and responsibilities to it for life or for a designated period, and 
then the property becomes that of the church. 

3. Appreciated property and securities, "E" bonds, church bonds, bank shares, 
and nearly any property of value can be transferred into a trust which can 
benefit the individual and the church - now or at a future date. 

4. The Foundation assists churches in establishing their own endowment, memo- 
rials, or Planned Giving committees, then works with the committee to promote 
estate stewardship among the people. The Foundation can - and does - serve as 
fiscal agent, managing the memorial funds, etc. received as a result of church 
committee's efforts, and then distributes the income back to the church or other 
designated beneficiaries. 

5. Local churches are now investing special funds which they hold for some future 
cause, with the Foundation for loans to new churches, to associations to pur- 
chase property for new churches, etc. These may be long-term or short-term 
loans, and each is handled on an individual basis. The local church receives a 

-43- 



fair return on its funds while enjoying the knowledge they have made those 
funds available to a struggling congregation who is engaged in the same 
"calling" as they - preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

6. Local churches, or_ specific programs of local churches, may be named bene- 
ficiary and owner of insurance policies, or the church may be named co-bene- 
ficiary, secondary beneficiary, remainder beneficiary, residual beneficiary, or 
even dividends may be assigned to the church. Tax consequences may accrue to 
the donor in each case. 

7. Churches now receive trust income from individual trusts administered by the 
Foundation for: 

- cemetery maintenance 

- help pay current building debt 

- for future construction of activities building or sanctuary 

- for capital improvements 

- for senior adult ministry 

- For youth summer mission programs 

- for homebound and tape ministry 

- for benevolent committee which meets local and community needs 

- sanctuary flowers 

- for its outreach in missions, special offerings, Children's Homes 

- for specific items of general grounds and building maintenance 

- for its contributions through Cooperative Program 

- for scholarship grants and loans 

In summary, every cause the church promotes and supports can be endowed for 
perpetual and "forever" support. The Foundation's role is to help the church, 
church members, and congregations find the best ways to do so.

Proceedings 



of the 

Yancey Baptist Association 

THEME: "Our Mission - The World" 

Scripture: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of 
the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all 
things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto 
the end of the world. Matthew 28: 19-20 

As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. John 20:21 

Tuesday Afternoon, August 4, 1987 
WEST BURNSVILLE BAPTIST CHURCH 

1. The 109th Annual Session of the Yancey Baptist Association opened with a 
piano prelude by Mary Ann Higgins. The host church was West Burnsville Baptist 
Church. Dr. Joseph Godwin, Moderator and pastor at Pleasant Gap Baptist Church, 
presided. 

2. Linda Griffith and Mrs. Fred Capps sang "Spirit Song" for the Call to Worship. 

3. Dr. Godwin introduced John Davis, pastor of the host church, who led in 
prayer and welcomed messengers and visitors to his church. 

4. Daniel Whetstine, Director of Missions of the Yancey Baptist Association, 
brought the devotional. He read Isaiah 50:4. He stated that in some instances, the 
greatest act of ministry was to provide information, to encourage others, to share with 
others. He stated that this was the purpose of the annual meeting - to share infor- 
mation, to encourage and be encouraged, and to share with others. 

5. Dr. Godwin presented the printed program as the agenda for the annual 
meeting. It was voted to be the agenda insofar as was reasonable and possible. 

6. Dr. Godwin appointed the Hospitality Committee as follows: Mrs. Nellie Styles, 
Mr. Lester Murphey, Mr. Howard Buchanan. He asked for other business. There 
was none. He appointed Rev. Richard Muri to serve as parliamentarian. 

7. Lisa Mauney, Associational Music Director, led the congregation in singing 
"We've a Story To Tell." 

8. Miss Nancy Curtis, Executive Director of WMU with the Baptist State Conven- 
tion of North Carolina, spoke. She read Psalm 67 - "a missionary Psalm." She shared 
with us how she came to be in her present job. She was a product of Southern Baptists - 
Sunday School, Training Union (now Church Training), G.A.'s. The Cooperative 
Program made it possible to go to a Baptist College. Then she taught school for nine 
years in New Mexico. She visited a missionary in Mexico - where she gained a great 
love for missions. She then taught for one more year, then went to seminary, expecting 
to become a Home Missionary. Fifteen years ago she got a call from the North 
Carolina Baptist State Convention to work with Baptist Women, where she has been 
ever since. Cooperative Program funds also helped pay her way to seminary. The 
work done through the North Carolina Baptist State Convention is paid for by the 
State Missions Offering and the Cooperative Program. 

WMU has been involved for 100 years in missionary service. The year 1988 will be 
the National Centennial for WMU. One of the most important things done by WMU 
is to teach missions. All we have to do is to let one generation grow up without teaching 
missions to lose our missionary effort. 



-12- 



Probably the most important thing WMU does is to pray for missions. When God's 
people pray, God acts. Many missionary societies were established to pray. How many 
came to know Christ because some woman prayed for them ? 

WMU gives. Within two years, Southern Baptists will have given over $1 billion 
through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering to foreign missions. Women have not 
done this alone - children and men also give, although women often lead in promoting 
the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. They give not only money, but also their 
children to serve as missionaries. We now have about 3,900 foreign missionaries on 
the mission field and about the same number on the home field. 

WMU is committed - not just to the church - but to God. There have been many 
committed foremothers. 

But what of today? What of tomorrow? We must be the same today and tomorrow 
as our foremothers were - we must teach missions, pray, give, be committed. But we 
must do it better. 

WMU will never be what it should be in a church without the men. WMU needs 
to be church wide. It was never intended to be a little group in the church doing its 
own thing. It should encompass the whole church. WMU needs to be in the center of 
the church leading the church to be a missions-minded church. 

WMU - Christian people - must teach the children today. Our best, most faithful, 
most loving people must work with the children, must teach the children, before they 
are five years old. We must teach them who we are as Southern Baptists. We must 
teach them our heritage. We must teach them missions. 

WMU must lead people to do more. We must help each other do more according as 
we are gifted to do. We must do more praying. We must do a better job of giving. We 
must do more outside the church. We must reach out to those who don't know Jesus. 

9. David Mauney, Mike Orr, and Joe Denny sang "Since Jesus Came Into My 
Heart." 

10. Presley Morris, pastor of Bolens Creek Baptist Church, brought the Missions 
Sermon. He read Psalm 126:5-6. He called on Blair Harvey, pastor of Crabtree Bap- 
tist Church, to lead in prayer. 

The main points of his message were: 

1. What is Missions? Telling people about Jesus Christ. 

2. Where should missions be done? Wherever there is a spiritual need. (He stated 
that if he had a choice between meeting physical and spiritual needs, he would 
choose meeting the spiritual need.) People don't find Jesus by hook or crook - 
somebody has to tell them about Him. You and I need to go wherever there is 
a spiritual need and tell people about Jesus. 

3. When should we do mission work? Now! People are lost now! People are dying 
now! Many of these who are lost have never heard about Jesus Christ. They 
are going to hell now ! (He stated that if you don't believe in hell, you will 
find out differently a few seconds after you die.) You and I are responsible 
NOW! 

4. How can we do it? 

a. By giving yourself to the Lord Jesus Christ. 

b. By committing yourself to being a full-time missionary for the Lord Jesus 
Christ. Every Christian needs to be a missionary wherever he is. We must 
be a Christian 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

c. We need to pray. 

d. We need to give our money. The more we give, the more people will live 
eternally with the Lord Jesus Christ. 

11. Lisa Mauney led the congregation in singing "Pass It On." 

12. Luther Osment, Director of Western Area Family Services with the Baptist 
Children's Homes of North Carolina, spoke on the Children's Homes. He stated that 
the fastest growing ministry of the Children's Homes is emergency care. There are 



-13- 



eight emergency care homes throughout North Carolina. At Broyhill, the Emergency 
Care Cottage has room for eight. It is almost always full. 

We think of children as being loved and cared for. Most that come to the Children's 
Homes are used, abused, and thrown away. 

The new Moody Home is successful, but for every one girl who is accepted, four 
must be turned away. With the expense involved, it is impossible to expand at this 
time. 

The maternity home at Asheville serves more than 30 girls each year. The youngest 
there now is a 12 year old, six months pregnant. You can't imagine a more productive 
ministry. 

The largest part of the care in Children's Homes is Group Care Homes. There are 
four in the state. Two percent of the children in them are full orphans, 17 percent 
have one living parent, and 81 percent have two living parents. Yet they have no 
homes. They are victims of the debauchery of our day. 

Expenses are escalating rapidly for the Children's Homes. But funds are not 
keeping up. As of this morning, Children's Homes had received $268,173 from the 
Homes and Hospital Offering - 40 percent of the goal. There are bills for clothes, 
medicine, etc. now that cannot be paid. Children's Homes desperately need funds. 

13. Lisa Mauney led the congregation in singing "People to People." 

14. Lavonne Murdock, Associational Clerk, did a roll call of churches. It revealed 
16 churches represented with a total present of 111. 

15. Wade and Wanda Harding sang "Let Me Be A Witness" and "Beulah Land." 

16. Dr. Godwin spoke to us about a "malaise" that has settled over Southern Bap- 
tists - a "crisis of trust." He said he once heard a black professor from Indiana 
University say, "Because I no longer hate the white man, I no longer fear the white 
man." There is a crisis of trust in our convention caused by - if not an element of hate, 
at least an absence of love. We need to learn to say, "Because I no longer hate my 
brother, I no longer fear my brother." We need to learn to interact with people and 
disagree or agree with their thoughts without getting emotional. 

Our problem is not a matter of theology. It dosen't matter if we believe exactly the 
same thing about the Bible. "If you do not believe what I believe, then all it means is 
that I do not believe what you believe, and that's all it means." The problem is not 
political. The problem is a lack of love and therefore a lack of trust. We need to love 
each other enough to trust each other in spite of our differences. 

17. Mr. R. G. Puckett, editor of the Biblical Recorder spoke. He stated that the 
Biblical Recorder is 155 years old. The paper looks a whole lot like it did then in size 
and shape. The end purpose of the Biblical Recorder is to be a reflection of what 
Southern Baptists are doing. 

He read Luke 9:51-62. The title of his message was "It Is Time to Start Plowing 
Again." 

Jesus and his disciples were traveling around and would eventually end up in 
Jerusalem. As they traveled, they needed lodging for the night. Custom was to stop at 
a house and ask for and be given lodging. When they stopped at a Samaritan's house, 
they were refused lodging. The disciples were furious and wanted to call down fire 
and wipe them out. There was no love lost between Jews and Samaritans. The Jews 
assumed a superior attitude and the Samaritans reciprocated. Jesus told them that 
they feared, hated and did not trust. 

One man wanted to join with them as they traveled along. Jesus told them he had 
no place to call home. Another wanted to wait for his parents to die and then follow 
him. Jesus told him, "No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, 
is fit for the kingdom of God." 

It is time for Southern Baptists to start plowing again. But how can they? 

1. We need to restore credibility to the Christian religion. Religion in America 
is in a mess. If we are to take Christianity seriously, then self must become 



-14- 



secondary. Truth is far more important than advantage. Servantship is far 
more important than Lordship. We need a recertification that Christianity 
can be trusted. We have got to demonstrate to the world the faith we possess by 
the works that we do. 

2. We ought to be ready to accept this challenge. There was never a more 
desperate time for the true Christian message. No more than 20 perecent of 
the world's population claims to be Christian. America has become one of the 
greatest mission fields on earth. The United States is no longer Christian by 
constitution, definition, nor action. There are more in North Carolina who 
are not members of any church than there are who are members. The mis- 
sion field is here ! 

3. The time has come to renew the focus on the local church. If the job is done 
there, it will get done in other places. The local church is the front line of the 
Lord's work. 

The time has come to stop fighting and start loving. The time has come to 
stop sitting on the pews and go out into the highways and hedges. The time 
has come to start plowing again. 

18. John Davis gave directions for the meal. 

19. Dr. Godwin led in the benediction and blessing. 

TUESDAY EVENING 

20. The Tuesday evening session began with quiet music by organist Mary Ann 
Higgins. Joseph Godwin, Moderator, presided. 

21. Ken Young from First Baptist Church sang, "It Is Well With My Soul," for the 
Call to Worship. 

22. Howard Buchanan, pastor of Young's Chapel Baptist Church, led in prayer. 

23. The Associational Youth, directed by Linda Griffith, did a program on Youth 
Evangelism. They sang "Get All Excited." They did a puppet show on Youth 
Evangelism which included two skits and a demonstration of Youth Bible Drill. 
They then sang "Fully Alive." 

24. Lester Murphey spoke to us about the building fund to build a new associational 
building. He read Proverbs 3:6. He suggested that we: 

1. Put the building fund in the church budget. 

2. Honor people on anniversaries, etc. by giving to the building fund. 

3. Send memorials to the building fund when someone dies. 

25. Lisa Mauney led the congregation in singing "More About Jesus." 

26. Roll call of churches by Lavonne Murdock, Associational Clerk, revealed 16 
churches represented with a total of 152 present. The youngest present was Julie 
Higgins, five months old daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Mike Higgins. 

27. Linda Griffith and Evelyn Capps sang "A Miracle and Nothing Less." The last 
verse of the song was written by Linda Griffith. 

28. Jim Lambert, Administrative Associate for Minister Support with the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina, spoke on State Missions. 

State Missions has more than 60 programs funded by the State Missions Offering. 
Many of these are partially funded by the Cooperative Program. The Cooperative 
Program is what we do in missions when we put our money together. 

There are more than six million reasons to support State Missions - people like us 
who are in churches. People all over the state in various degrees of need who are 
touched by our giving through State Missions Offering and the Cooperative 
Program. 

B. T. Miles made four statements about missions that are certainly true. 

1. "Missions is a ministry to marginal people." The children in our Children's 
Homes are marginal people. People in Homes for the Aging are marginal 



-15- 



people. People who do not have what we take for granted are marginal people - 
the deaf, blind, retarded, and others. These are all helped by funds from the 
State Missions Offering and the Cooperative Program. 

2. "Missions is a ministry to people caught between the furrows of change." 
Examples of these are refugees, prisoners, migrant workers, resort people. 
These people are helped by monies received from the North Carolina Missions 
Offering and the Cooperative Program. Last year over 3,000 in prisons were 
enrolled in seminary extension classes. 

3. "Missions is helping people who've said 'yes' do 'yes.' " The State Missions 
Offering and the Cooperative Program make it possible for people to help in 
Youth Bible Drills, Brotherhood, WMU, and other church programs. They 
make possible the work of area missionaries. 

4. "Missions is helping people who've said 'no' learn to say 'yes.' " We are laborers 
together with God. We are all to go into all the world and preach the gospel. 
Many of us are missionary-minded and missionary-mouthed, but we do nothing 
about it. Missions is in our hands to do with as we want. It is up to us. The 
gospel is ours to share with the world. We need to remember the six million 
reasons in North Carolina for State Missions and the Cooperative Program. 

29. Lisa Mauney led the congregation in singing "We Have Heard the Joyful 
Sound." 

30. The choir from West Burnsville Baptist Church sang "Dwelling in Beulah 
Land" and "Just a Little Talk With Jesus." 

31. Dr. Godwin introduced Nat Howell from West Burnsville Baptist Church, 
who is the only person in North Carolina to go to Togo four times. He also intro- 
duced Miss Tensie Bailey who has attended 55 of the last 57 annual meetings. 

32. Mr. John Mills, Director for West Africa with the Foreign Mission Board of 
the Southern Baptist Convention, spoke on Foreign Missions. He read Mark 8:34-38. 
He stated that he spent 30 years as a foreign missionary in West Africa and 1 1 years 
in his present job, working with over 450 missionaries in 14 countries. 

The primary goal of Bold Missions is to proclaim the gospel by the year 2000 to 
every person on earth. None of us can do more than dip into this task. An illustration 
of this is the NC/Togo Partnership. Togo is over 600 miles long and 35 miles wide. A 
river runs down the middle of it. The road goes up the West Bank. People across the 
river had been by-passed. The people on the east side were idol worshipers. In the 
dry season, missionaries would cross the river to try to reach people for Christ - 
unsuccessfully. When planning the NC/Togo Partnership, they met with the chief to 
see what they needed. The natives of Togo asked for a school and a hospital. The 
missionaries could not build a school because of government regulations. But they 
promised literacy training. They could not afford to build hospitals, but promised 
help in preventing illness - immunizations and pure water. The chief also asked for a 
bridge so they could cross the river during wet season. They began a program of 
well-drilling, building bridges, digging ponds. The people in Togo learned that 
Christians care. 

A total of 113 wells and 12 catchment ponds, plus health care and bridges showed 
that Christians care. The result has been 12,000 baptized and 42 preaching stations. 
The NC/Togo Partnership ended up with evangelistic services. A total of 1,200 made 
professions of faith - 10 percent of those present. 

If the world hears the gospel, then somebody has to go, love, care and help people 
with their needs and stick with them through thick and thin. 

Jesus had been talking to his disciples. Then he spoke to the multitude: 

"If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take 
up his cross and follow me." 

It's to the same multitudes that he gave the Great Commission - 

-16- 



Matthew 28:19-20. Whose task is it to take the gospel to the whole 
world? It is the task of the Christian. What it will take is commit- 
ment. God has blessed Southern Baptists, but we are not giving 
any more to foreign missions than we did during the depression 
based on cost of living increases. 
We need to do three things: 

1. Preach missions in the local church. 

2. Learn how to give. 

3. Learn how to pray. 

33. Ed Hunter led in the benediction. 

Wednesday Morning, August 5, 1987 
PLEASANT GAP BAPTIST CHURCH 

34. The Wednesday morning session began with an organ and piano duet by 
Lavonne Murdock, pianist, and Renee Murdock, organist. The host church was 
Pleasant Gap Baptist Church, Dr. Joseph Godwin, Moderator, presided. 

35. Hugh Borders, Director of Missions of the Mitchell Baptist Association, sang, 
"Set My Soul Afire," for the Call to Worship. 

36. Hugh Borders led in prayer. 

37. Dr. Joseph Godwin, pastor of the host church, welcomed messengers and 
visitors to the church. 

38. Daniel Whetstine, Director of Missions of the Yancey Baptist Association, 
brought the devotional. He read Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through 
Christ who strengthens me." There is no place in the Christian vocabulary for the 
words "I can't." We need to obtain the "I can" habit and also the "I will" habit. 

39. Maurice Cooper, Church Training Director of the North Carolina Baptist 
State Convention, spoke on Church Training. He gave us an acrostic for BAPTIST. 

B Born Again 

A Authority. We believe that the Bible is our authority. Children's and Youth 

Bible Drills are good ways to develop skills in using the Bible. A total of 239 

people leave Southern Baptist churches every day and join one major cult. 

Church Training helps a Christian understand Christian doctrine. 
P Proclamation. The job of every born again believer is proclamation. Church 

Training helps equip the Christian to do the work of the ministry. 
T Teaching and training. Southern Baptists have the greatest teaching and 

training programs in the world. 
I Immersion. New Member Training in Church Training teaches why we 

believe in baptism by immersion. 
S God's Son - Savior unto Salvation. There is a major doctrine study each year 

in Church Training. 
T Together. The Cooperative Program is what we can do together doing God's 

Work. 

40. Hugh Borders sang "Now I Belong to Jesus." 

41. Lisa Mauney played the trumpet, accompanied by Lavonne Murdock on the 
piano. 

42. Calvin Knight talked about Baptist Hospital. He stated that the practice of 
medicine is becoming specialized and subspecialized. Through medical research, 
more and more knowledge is becoming available so that specialists and subspecialists 
are more and more important. Baptist Hospital is drawing patients from a wider and 
wider area, and people from North Carolina are going farther to get help for certain 
things where specialists and subspecialists are available. When we give through the 



-17- 



Cooperative Program, we help in the spiritual ministry of the hospital. Chaplains 
visit rooms daily and are sometime involved in professions of faith. Baptist Hospital 
uses money from the H&H offering for benevolent care - those who cannot pay for 
their care or part of their care. 

43. Robert Stewart, Sunday School Director with the North Carolina Baptist State 
Convention, spoke on Sunday School. The title of his message was "The Importance 
of Letting Our Lives Touch Other Lives." He stated that Sunday School is an utter 
waste of time unless lives are changed as a result of it. "Touching" is a very serious 
business. Jesus was in the business of touching people. The Sunday School Theme for 
the coming year is "Touch Lives - Change People." 

Four ways that Jesus touched lives and changed people: 

1. He touched people within the rule of the system and outside the rules of the 
system. Sometimes we have to break the rules to reach out and touch people. 

2. Jesus touched people in sorrow and joy. 

3. Jesus touched people in lots of settings - socials (the wedding), private meetings 
(Nicodemus), etc. 

4. Jesus touched different kinds of people - wealthy (rich young ruler) and those 
who had absolutely nothing. 

Who is your Sunday School and church in the business of touching? Some do not 
want to touch new people or change things too much. We will not reach people for 
the Lord without changing things. We need to touch lives - change people. 

44. William B. Sillerman, President of Baptist Retirement Homes of North 
Carolina, spoke on the retirement homes. 

Remarkable things are happening in Baptist Retirement Homes in North 
Carolina as we try to fulfill our mission by providing quality residential opportunities 
for our older adults. There are three suppositions of our ministry: 

1. We believe in the good news of Jesus Christ. This can bring great hope to 
older adults. 

2. We believe in older adults. They are just as important as children, teenagers, 
or young adults. Those over 65 offer one of the greatest resources we have 
available. Too many people believe that when you reach 65, you need to be 
put through a wringer and put out to dry. Older adults can make a difference 
in the quality of our life. 

3. We believe in providing quality care - care that protects the dignity of those 
that are a part of the institution. We think of our retirement homes as a "warm 
spot" for older adults where they can be nurtured and cared for and retain 
their dignity. 

Western North Carolina has a greater need for care for older adults than any place 
in the state. By 1991 they hope to triple the size of the institutions. It is because of the 
support of Baptist people that Baptist Retirement Homes are able to do what they do 
now. 

45. Roll call of churches by Lavonne Murdock revealed 15 churches represented 
with 101 present. 

46. Dr. Fred Bentley, President of Mars Hill College, spoke on Christian Higher 
Education. He read Romans 12:1-8. Why are there over 3,000 Baptist Churches in 
North Carolina? 

1. They share in a common belief. Some of these are: a. The Bible is the Holy 
inspired word of God. b. Jesus is the Son of God. c. Salvation is by the grace of 
God. d. We believe in the priesthood of every believer, e. We believe in the 
autonomy of the individual church, f. We believe that together we can ac- 
complish great things for God. Thus the Cooperative Program. 
Our colleges work with students in a community helping them to find God's will in 
their life. Cooperative Program funds help make this possible. 

47. Lisa Mauney led the congregation in singing "I Will Sing the Wondrous Story." 



-18- 



48. Doris Bentley sang a medley which contained "Teach Me, O Lord, To Care" 
and "Do You Really Care?" which she sang as "Do I Really Care?." 

49. Tom Lolly, Area Missionary for Western North Carolina, spoke on Home 
Missions. He stated that he grew up in a missions-minded, cooperative, cooperating 
Baptist Church. He was taught not only John 3:16, that God loved him, but also Acts 
1:8, that God loved the rest of the world too and that we had the responsibility to 
share the news with the rest of the world. We do not have a choice. It is a demand. 

There are five ways Baptists do missions: 

1 . Local Church Missions - within the community 

2. Associational Missions - churches can do missions together that they cannot do 
alone. 

3. State Missions - churches work together on a state level to support things like 
colleges, hospitals, children's homes, retirement homes, etc. 

4. & 5. The Southern Baptist Convention formed the Home Mission Board and the 
Foreign Mission Board. 
Some think that the mission task is something a church can do if it wants to do or 
something women do in WMU. But we are commanded to be witnesses in Yancey 
County, North Carolina, the United States, and the whole world. 

50. Dr. Godwin gave instructions for lunch. 

51. Robert Melvin, pastor of Cane River Baptist Church, led in the blessing and 
benediction. 

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON 

52. The afternoon session began with an organ and piano prelude by Renee Mur- 
dock, organist and Lavonne Murdock, pianist. Dr. Joseph Godwin, Moderator, 
presided. 

53. Hugh Borders sang "Send Me, O Lord, Send Me" and "So Send I You." 

54. Daniel Whetstine brought the devotional. He read Matthew 28:19-20. We have 
a command to go into all the world and tell the whole world about Jesus. We need to 
begin here at home, but we don't need to stop there. We need to go into the rest of the 
world. 

55. David Sheriff brought the Annual Sermon. He gave us the following statistics: 
Year Enrollment in Population Percent Sunday School Sunday School 

our Churches of Yancey Enrolled Enrollment Attendance 
1977 5,002 14,400 36% 19.2% 12.6% 

1986 3,900 15,500 25.6% 12.9% 8.5% 

Are we going in the right direction? What can God do through us? What is done in 

Yancey Baptist Association is in our hands. 

He read Acts 4:36-37, Acts 9:26-27, and Acts 15:36-39, all passages about Barnabus. 

What do we know about Barnabus? 

1. Barnabus was the type of person who could see beyond what people were to 
what they could be. He was willing to take a chance on Saul. On Barnabus's 
word, the rest were willing to receive Saul. We need to encourage others to 
take challenges and do things thev are capable of doing. Barnabus also stood 
by John Mark when it came time for another mission trip. Barnabus wanted 
to take John Mark. Paul did not. We must be able to see beyond what people 
are in their lost sinful condition to what they can be with Christ Jesus. 

2. Barnabus was willing to play "second fiddle" to Paul. At the beginning of the 
first missionary journey, Barnabus was the leader. Paul became the leader 
and Barnabus was able to work within that context. 

3. Barnabus was willing to give a second chance. John Mark had failed on the 
first Missionary Journey, but Barnabus was willing to give him a second 



-19- 



chance. We need to encourage people who make mistakes and give them a 
second chance. Who needs encouraging? Our new Director of Missions, our 
new officers for the coming year, all people that we encounter. 
Here are six points from Happiness Is No Secret: 

1. Recognize your infinite worth 

2. Accept yourself as you are 

3. Believe in yourself 

4. Maximize your strengths 

5. Make yourself available 

6. Don't impose on yourself unrealistic goals. 

56. Willie Riddle sang "Great Is Thy Faithfulness." 

57. Roll call of churches revealed 15 churches represented with a total present of 
86. 

58. The report of the Hospitality Committee was read and adopted. 

59. Daniel Whetstine stated that the North Carolina Baptist State Convention 
would provide a library free of charge if we voted to do so. He made the motion that 
we establish one. Ralph Shepherd seconded. Motion carried. 

60. Dr. Godwin expressed his appreciation for the program, the hospitality of the 
churches, the food, to Lavonne Murdock for her work in the associational office in 
the absence of a Director of Missions and as Associational Clerk. He introduced Mrs. 
Zula Jamerson who has attended the Annual Meeting faithfully for almost 50 years. 

61. The Book of Reports was adopted, thus electing the officers nominated by the 
Nominating Committee and approving the proposed budget for the coming year. 

62. The floor was opened for nominations for Moderator. Nellie Styles nominated 
David Sheriff. Nancy Holcombe seconded. Dr. Godwin nominated John Davis. Cecil 
Huskins seconded. John Davis asked that his name be withdrawn. Cecil Huskins 
nominated Howard Buchanan. Jack Mcintosh seconded. Lucille Godwin nominated 
Bob Melvin. The nomination was seconded. Ralph Shepherd stated that Mr. Melvin 
had stated at lunch that he would not accept the nomination. Ralph Shepherd moved 
the nominations cease. Harold Lusk seconded. Motion carried. Vote was taken with 
Howard Buchanan receiving 24 votes and David Sheriff receiving 35 votes. David 
Sheriff was elected Moderator. 

63. Floor was opened for nominations for Vice-Moderator. Ralph Shepherd 
nominated Howard Buchanan. Steve Clark seconded. Lavonne Murdock nominated 
Harold Lusk. Cecil Huskins seconded. Vote was taken. Harold Lusk received 23 
votes. Howard Buchanan received 30. Howard Buchanan was elected Vice- 
Moderator. 

64. Floor was opened for nominations for Associational Clerk. Ed Hunter nominated 
Lavonne Murdock. Opal McDougald seconded. There were no other nominations. 
Lavonne Murdock was elected Associational Clerk. 

65. Linda Griffith led the congregation in singing "Take the Name of Jesus With 
You." 

66. Ouida Dahlin, Betty Dahlin, Renee Murdock, and Pam Reeves from Pleasant 
Gap Baptist Church sang "O Glorious Love." 

67. Harold Bennett, Jr., Director of Missions of the Three Forks Baptist Association, 
brought the closing message. He read 2 Corinthians 5:17-21. The title of his message 
was "Don't Let the Urgent Take the Place of the Important." As a Christian we 
don't need to let the urgent take the place of the important. We must be careful or 
this can happen to us. The urgent will plead for our time and make us think we did 
the right thing. The important is neither noisy nor demanding. It is patient and 
quietly waits for us to realize how significant it is. We need to know what is impor- 
tant to us as individuals, churches and the association. We need to pay more attention 
to what we may become than that which we were. The important thing to the in- 



-20- 



dividual, the church, and the association is the "new creature" - that one who is in 
Christ. Old thing passing away and becoming a new creature comes through Jesus 
Christ. 

God has given to Christians the ministry of reconciliation. The miracle of the 
ministry (accomplishing those things that God wills) is that God has placed himself at 
our mercy. If the ministry is to be accomplished, God is depending on us. Why do we 
need to be ambassadors of Christ - ministers of reconciliation ? There are 240 million 
people in the United States. A total of 156 million people have no personal relation- 
ship with Jesus Christ. We are less than 50 percent Christians. By 1990, there will be 
175 million lost American residents. Many Baptists are converted each year to the 
Morman faith and to Jehovah Witness. 

We need Sunday School teachers who are excited about teaching God's Word. We 
need Church Training leaders who are excited about training people in discipleship. 
We need to get excited about teaching boys and girls about missions. We need WMUs 
and Brotherhoods to lead the churches in missions. We need pastors who are excited 
about God's calling. 

There are three things people are looking for in a church: 

1. A warm and friendly congregation. 

2. A Bible-teaching church. 

3. A place where the presence of God can be sensed. 

Helping someone to be reconciled to God should bring us the most satisfaction and 
joy. This is what is important. 

68. The 109th Annual Meeting of the Yancey Baptist Association ended with the 
benediction by Dr. Joseph Godwin.

Hospitality Committee Report 



We, the Hospitality Committee, wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the 
excellent program and to the West Burnsville Baptist Church for the good food, 
fellowship, and use of their facilities. We are grateful for the Youth participation 
and the special music. 

Too, the second day at Pleasant Gap was inspiring and uplifting. We genuinely 
appreciate the good food, Pleasant Gap, and we gratefully acknowledge the efficient 
work of our clerk and moderator. 

Sincerely, 

HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE. 
Nellie Styles, Howard Buchanan, Lester Murphey 

Director of Missions Report 

Let me begin by saying thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving my Lord 
and Yancey County Baptists as your Director of Missions. During the past three 
months, some wonderful things have happened. I sense an excitement and en- 
thusiasm in our association that some say have been absent for some time. Things are 
beginning to happen! In July 1988 we will be having what I hope will become an 
annual Evangelistic Crusade. In October of next year, we will participate in a World 
Missions Conference. In the spring of 1988 we are planning an Evangelistic Youth 
Rally. Permission has been given by the U.S. Forest Service and plans are now 
underway to begin a Sunday Worship Service at Black Mountain Campground. Our 
association will be represented this year with a booth at the Craft Fair. We will not be 
selling anything, but sharing the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ with 
tracts and scripture portions. The Missions Committee is presently studying two areas 
where new work may be needed. These areas presently have no Southern Baptist 
work at all. 

The Lord is truly blessing Yancey Association, but we still have a long way to go. 
We need the help and support of every Yancey County Baptist in every church if we 
are to succeed in our work for the Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Daniel Whetstine 
Director of Missions 

The Moderator's Report 

This report is one of joy and gratitude. 

During the year, it has been my pleasure and great joy to work with some of the 
finest, most cooperative, most lovable Christians I have ever known. 
Your attitude and commitment have been simply beautiful ! 
For this I am and always shall be very grateful. 

Our chief activity has been gaining a new Director of Missions — without a squabble. 
(How about that?) 

In the absence of a "regular" Director of Missions, Lavonne Murdock has done a 
simply superb job that has placed us all in her debt. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Joseph Godwin, Moderator

Sunday School Report 



Sunday School work for the year 1986-87 is now history. The poet spoke a truth 
when he said, "The saddest words of tongue or pen, it might have been." 

Yes, there is no doubt about it. The year 1986-87 was not the best of years. You 
may be asking why — one reason I, the Director, did not promote the work as I knew 
to do and was responsible for doing. 

The theme, "The People Challenge . . . Go . . . Teach . . . Tell" was very challenging. 
The slogan "Challenge 10/90" calls us to go forward to enroll at least ten million 
people in Bible study by 1990. The call is insistent and demanding. God is able to 
bring us to victory, so the response of Southern Baptists will be a determining factor. 

The theme for 1987-88 (October 1987-September 30, 1988) is "Touch lives . . . 
Change People." Southern Baptists (Yancey Baptists) are in the people business. 
What do we want? Harry M. Piland has suggested some of our "wants." 

1. We want people to study the Bible. 

2. We want all people to hear the Gospel story. 

3. We want people to know who Jesus is, what He did, and why He did it. 

4. We want persons to respond in repentance and faith to Him. 
This is why we have Bold Mission Thrust and Challenge 10/90. 

Let us resolve that with the Lord's help we will get on with the work of reaching 
people, teaching people, witnessing to people, and ministering to people. God has the 
power and, if we make ourselves available to Him, He will touch lives and change 
lives. Sunday School, one of the fine program organizations of the church, can be 
used to bring glory to His name. 

An ASSISTeam (Associational Sunday School Improvement Support Team) has 
been enlisted. They stand ready and prepared to assist any church and every church, 
if needed. They are: 

Leadership Training Director Lester Murphey 

Outreach Director David Sheriff 

Vacation Bible School Director Lavonne Murdock 

Secretary Mrs. Herschel Holcombe 

Preschool Director Mrs. Jess Styles 

Children's Director Mrs. Jim Parlier 

Youth Director Mrs. Harold Lusk 

Adult Director Mrs. Joseph Godwin 

College Leader Mrs. Doyle Dale 

Special Ministries Director Mrs. Dwight Boone, Jr. 

Ask their help. You will be glad that you did. 

Jesus, during His ministry on earth, touched lives. Jesus changed lives. He said, 
"As the Father hath sent Me even so send I you." John 20:21 

Respectfully submitted, 
Laura Mae Hilliard 
Associational Sunday School Director 

Vacation Bible School Report 

The words "Vacation Bible School" flash colorful mental pictures into focus - an 
open Bible, a processional led by flag and Bible bearers, a Joint Service in progress, a 
teacher telling a story, refreshments being enjoyed, and pupils confessing Christ as 
Savior. 



-25- 



Vacation Bible School is one of a church's best opportunities for personal 
evangelism. Approximately one-fourth of all children and youth baptized into 
Southern Baptist Churches make their commitment to Christ in Vacation Bible 
School. 

Vacation Bible School majors on Bible study. It contributes effectively to a church's 
outreach, and especially to evangelism. It undergirds and gives expression to the 
functions of a church. It provides mission emphases and supports the Cooperative 
Program. It makes great use of music. It contributes to Christian living of Bible 
truths. 

This year the Associational VBS Clinic was held in May at the First Baptist Church 
Fifty-four people from ten churches attended. This concerns me deeply. During the 
five years that I have been VBS Director, the attendance at the Associational VBS 
Clinic has slowly declined year after year. Unfortunately, the total attendance in 
VBS in the association has also declined. This is something I would urge each of you 
to pray about. 

I deeply appreciate the following: Iva Nell Buckner, Laura Mae Hilliard, Beth 
Joyner, Donna Garrett, Pam Reeves, Martha Autrey, Nellie Styles, and Barbara 
Babb, each of whom taught one of the associational clinics; Lisa Mauney, who helped 
with the music; the women of Pleasant Gap Baptist Church, who provided the 
refreshments; Lucille Godwin and Faye Riddle, who served the refreshments; and 
First Baptist Church for allowing us to use their facilities. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lavonne Murdock 
Associational VBS Director 

Church Training Report 

Southern Baptists have lifted the challenge of sharing the gospel with all persons 
by the year 2000. This Bold Mission Thrust Challenge has included three goal areas 
for the period 1985-1990: Reach People, Develop Believers, and Strengthen 
Missions. 

Most of the projects developing believers are assigned to Church Training. These 
projects are: 

Train Church Members 

Orient New Church Members 

Train Church Leaders 

Teach Baptist Doctrine 

Provide In-Depth Discipleship Training 
"M" Night this year was held at the Mt. Pleasant Church. Dr. Robert Melvin, 
pastor of the Cane River Church, brought an inspirational message. An offering of 
more than $100.00 was made to purchase literature for Togo. Again, Nat Howell of 
the West Burnsville Church represented our association as a volunteer for work in 
Togo. 

Early this year, several Church Training members attended a seminar on the Doc- 
trine of Prayer which was held at the First Baptist Church in Burnsville. This is a 
tremendous study. The West Burnsville Church has already had a study on the Doc- 
trine of Prayer. Others have plans for the study this summer. Prayer opens the source 
of power to the Christian. It will change our lives and bring revival to our land. It is 
our prayer that all the churches of our association will have this most important 
study of the Doctrine of Prayer. 

Only one church represented our association in the Bible Drills this year. Three 
children from the West Burnsville Church were winners in the State Drills. Also, 
West Burnsville had three youth who were State Winners. Our hats are off to West 
Burnsville, their leadership, these children and their parents. 

-26- 



This brings some questions to mind: 

Do other children and youth not care about learning God's Words? Will they not 
discipline themselves to take the time to learn God's Word? 

Do parents not think it important for their children to hide God's Word in their 
hearts? Will they not encourage and help their children to learn God's Word above 
all else? 

Does Church Leadership not feel a responsibility to the children and the youth of 
their churches in this regard? 

Are pastors stressing the importance of knowing God's Word? 

We need to reach the lost of our association and around the world by the study of 
God's Word and prayer. We need to learn how to pray and meet the conditions for 
answers to our prayers. We need to know what Baptists believe and the Bible's reason 
for believing these things. Every church member needs to be fully equipped to serve 
in our association as thousands around us attend no church at all. Do you care? 

Respectfully submitted, 
Virginia York 
Associational Church Training Director 

WMU Report 

Our WMU theme for the year was "Gifted to Serve, Called to go Forward." 

Paul tells us of our spiritual gifts, not to be ignorant. Only through personal com- 
mitment of our time and talent, can our work be strengthened. 

We have failed to do all we should have this year. I pray we will be more dedicated 
to our task another year. 

We are holding our own, gained some new members. We lost one WMU but gained 
another one. We wish to welcome Baptist Women of Hall's Chapel. 

From our cookbook sale, we helped send Mr. Nat Howell to Togo twice, and David 
Mauney to Kenya. 

The highlights of our year have been our Foreign Mission Study, taught by Miss 
Sue Fitzgerald at Bolens Creek Church with nine churches represented; our annual 
meeting at Bolens Creek, with eight churches represented; and our speakers at the 
annual meeting, Mr. and Mrs. John McGee. 

Let's celebrate something that occurs only once in a lifetime. WMU Centennial 
Year is here. Exciting days are ahead as we rejoice in WMU's 100 years of quality 
mission education. We will be representing plans for celebration later. 

Our watchword for 1987-88 is "Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the 
word of God, - Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Heb. 13:7-8 
RSV) 

Respectfully submitted, 
Opal McDougald 
Associational WMU Director 

Brotherhood Report 

The basic task of Brotherhood is to involve men and boys in missions. In 1986 there 
were more men involved in mission action, study, and prayer groups than ever 
before. Men's prayer groups continue to grow at a fast rate. For both the church and 
Brotherhood, this is a vital sign of good things to come. 

During 1986, the State Brotherhood Department continued to help develop local 
Brotherhood leadership (associational and local church). Without good trained 
leadership at these levels, it will be difficult to sustain growth in mission outreach for 

-27- 



men and boys. Great effort was given to train specialists in Brotherhood work to help 
lead, both at the church and associational level. 

Baptist Men continue to work hand in hand with the Brotherhood department in 
enlisting men to various ministries. At the present time there are 13 different 
ministries in which Baptist Men are involved. 

Yancey Association involvement in Brotherhood ministries is not as strong as we 
would like for it to be. In 1986, three churches reported a Baptist Men's Program 
with a total enrollment of 57. This is down from 58 last year. Four churches reported 
R.A.'s with a total enrollment of 45. This too is down from 54 the previous year. 

Youth Report 

Armed robbery of a US Post Office; sentenced to prison; discovery of true friend 
and Savior, Jesus Christ; service as speaker for Christ; and marriage to a Christian 
lady; all a part of the testimony our youth heard from Mr. George Holly, an inmate 
of the Haywood County Prison Unit. We shared this special evening as Yancey Bap- 
tist Youth combined with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes from Mountain 
Heritage High School on a leaf ride to High Pastures, November 1st. Sixty-five 
young people and adults were divided into smaller groups, led by Mars Hill College 
students, to discuss what we had heard from Mr. Holly. A different format than our 
usual "Leaf Ride." A different outcome, as two decisions for Christ were made. 

We want to thank West Burnsville for sharing Rev. Randy Kilby with Yancey 
Youth, in March, during their weekend Youth Revival. Mars Hill College students 
provided special music on Saturday night. 

June 22 found 39 of us at Pinebridge for an evening of activities, topped off with 
pizza served by one of our former youth, Renee Murdock. 

Looking back it is apparent that the youth themselves contributed most to each 
event's success. They brought enthusiasm, laughter and friends. They drove, led 
groups and served wherever they were asked. Youth are not just the Church of 
Tomorrow, they are a vital part of the church today! We as adults need only to 
provide the opportunities. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Linda Griffith, Chairman 
Youth Committee 

Senior Adults Report 

There is a great need in Yancey Baptist Association for the senior adults. I hope to 
see more senior adults involved in more activities this coming year. 

Retirement age is not a time to quit, but a time to do things we often dreamed of. I 
hope your dream will be to be active in our churches and the Yancey Baptist 
Association. 

As Senior Adult Coordinator, I am looking forward to working with each one of 
you. I hope we can have some trips, workshops and other things. If anyone has a 
suggestion, please let me know. 

We must keep in mind our Annual Christmas Party at the North Carolina 
Retirement Home in Asheville. 

I would like to ask that each church elect a Senior Adult Coordinator and give me 
their name so we can keep "in touch."

As we start another year in Yancey Baptist Association, let's work together as the

Executive Committee Report v 

The Executive Committee of the Yancey Baptist Association met in a regular 
meeting on October 13, 1986. The committee voted that the association would pay 
any funds that David Mauney did not raise for his volunteer mission trip to Kenya. It 
also voted to hire a full-time Director of Missions rather than a part-time director. 

The Executive Committee met in a called meeting on November 17, 1986. The

of the association to vote on this matter on Sunday, April 26, 1987. 

The Yancey Baptist Association met in a special called meeting on Sunday, April 
26, 1987, to vote on Daniel Whetstine as Director of Missions. Fifty-seven messengers

Foreign Mission Board Report 

The bottom line for Southern Baptists is missions — and for 1986 it was a banner 
year in foreign missions ! 

- A record 185,689 baptisms — an average of more than 500 every day 

- An average of 20 new churches started each week 

- 3,756 missionaries working in 108 countries 

- Appointment of 256 career missionaries, a record number 

- National pastors numbering over 14,500, a year's increase of 9.6 percent 

- More than 50,000 radio broadcasts and 2,150 T.V. programs produced 



-34- 



-About 137,000 inpatients and more than 1.3 million outpatients cared for by 
health care missionaries 

- More than 1,900 Southern Baptist Volunteers joining overseas Baptist partners 
in special efforts, resulting in 24,279 professions of faith in Christ 

- Only 10 percent of income was used for home office administration and pro- 
motion. That is only 10 cents out of each dollar. 

Southern Baptists still have a long way to go to reach Bold Mission Thrust goals set 
for the year 2000. Ahead in numbers of missionaries, countries, and volunteers, we 
are behind in churches and chapels established, and in baptisms and church mem- 
bership. But we have reason for hope. Hope lies in the number of baptisms in 1986, 
an increase of 17.1 percent. The number of overseas Baptists receiving seminary and 
extension training has increased. We have partners worldwide sharing our dream of 
presenting the gospel to all people by the end of the century. Won't you be a part of 
this great effort? Give through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. 

Home Mission Board Report 

The Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention works in all 50 states, 
in Puerto Rico, and the American Virgin Islands, with 3,637 missionaries serving 
through this area. There are approximately 300 staff and support personnel who 
work full-time in the Home Mission Board offices in Atlanta, Georgia. These 300 
personnel correlate plans and actions to assist 36,000 Southern Baptist Convention 
churches, 1,200 associations, and 37 state conventions. 

The Home Mission Board places about 48,000 special workers on mission fields 
every year. This includes choirs, youth and adult mission groups, Student Summer 
and Semester Missionaries, Sojourners, Campers on Mission and Christian Service 
Corps volunteers. Along with these ministries, the Home Mission Board also endorses 
2,013 chaplains serving in hospitals, institutions, businesses, industries, and in the 
military. This agency also supports 315 missionaries who serve in Christian social 
ministries, 80 US-2ers, college graduates serving as missionaries for a two-year term, 
and 837 Mission Service Corps volunteers. 

The Home Mission Board gives pastoral aid assistance to 635 pastors across the 
Southern Baptist Convention to enable them to serve on the church field full-time. 

The operational budget of the Home Mission Board for 1986 was $67,324,354. The 
ministries of this agency cost $5,610,363 per month, $1,294,699 per week, $184,450 
per day, $7,685 per hour, or $128 per minute. 

The primary goal of the Home Mission Board is evangelism. May we all share the 
same goal for 1987-88. 

State Missions Report 

When we think about the term "missions," very likely our thoughts will turn to 
the jungles of Africa or the rain forests of South America. As a result, we often think 
of missions as a distant object, something to be observed but not experienced. Missions, 
too often, mean "them" not "us," and certainly not "me." 

We are State Missions when we act in Christ's name. State Missions by definition 
means "me." 

State Missions involves every church and every association which reaches out to 
meet the special needs found in its community, to start new churches and strengthen 
the ministry of existing ones, to witness and to minister. It also involves all North 
Carolina Baptists who together support a variety of ministries that no one could un- 
dertake alone.

In September, the churches of Yancey Association will be receiving the Annual 
State Missions Offering. A complete listing of all ministries supported by this offering 
would take more space than we have, so we would like to mention just a few. 

These are Mission Ministries, Caraway Conference Center, Christian Higher 
Education, N.C. Baptist Men, N.C. Baptist Assembly, W.M.U., and the Christian 
Action League of N.C. Of these departments, Missions Ministries receives the largest 
percentage of the State Missions Offering at 40.27 percent. This helps support Church 
Growth Assistance to new churches and missions, seminary extension courses for 355 
prison inmates, training for over 100 chaplains, ministries for retarded persons, 
resort ministries, church and community missions, and dozens of others. 

In September, as you give to the State Missions Offering, remember that "we" are 
State Missions. 

Annuity Board Report 

The Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention is charged by the 
denomination with the responsibility of administering retirement and insurance 
programs to meet the needs of ministers, church employees, denominational and in- 
stitutional employees, and seminary students. Money contributed by churches, agen- 
cies, and individuals is held in trust by the Annuity Board to provide these benefits. 

A relief and supplemental assistance program assists needy, disabled and retired 
ministers and widows of ministers. This program is funded by the Southern Baptist 
Convention Cooperative Program and by private donations to the Annuity Board's 
Endowment Department. 

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS - 1986 



Total Assets $1,959,062,174 

Premium Income $ 135,378,066 

Investment Income $ 218,124,929 

Retirement Benefits Paid $ 48 , 924 , 562 

Insurance Benefits Paid $ 50 , 983 , 546 

Total Number of Annuitants 16,375 



The ministry of the Annuity Board can best be summed up by the words of 
William Lunsford, Executive Secretary 1918-1927, "Our aim is to persuade people to 
say to the minister in active service today, 'give yourself wholeheartedly to the work; 
spend yourself freely; be not afraid; we do not pay you the salaries that we should, 
but this we promise, that we will stand back of you; if you fall back in the work, we 
will care for you; if you die, we will not permit your family to suffer; if you grow old 
in it, we will comfort your declining years.' " 

The Report of the Baptist Retirement Homes 
of North Carolina, Inc. 

The year 1986-87 has been an exciting time in the life of the Baptist Retirement 
Homes of North Carolina, Inc. Charged with the task of providing quality living op- 
portunities for Older Adults within a Christian context, the "Homes" has this year at- 
tempted to "move forward" in three broad directions. 
I. Advocacy for Older Adults 

During 1986-87, the "Homes" has endeavored to become an advocate, 
a spokesman, for a very special segment of the state's population . . . the 
Older Adult. Appearing before church, associational, and convention 
groups throughout the state, the "Homes" and staff have attempted to 
sensitize Baptists to the particular needs of Older Adults as well as the 

-36- 



significant contribution they can make to the well-being of the churches 
and associations of the Baptist State Convention. 
II. Quality Care 

During the year 1986-87, the "Homes" has continued to develop creative 
ways to meet the needs of Older Adults. For example, a significant new 
relationship has been established between the "Homes" and the Geriatric 
Section of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine (Wake Forest University) . 
Mary Lyles, an attending physician in the Department of Medicine, has 
been appointed the "Homes" Medical Director. As a result of this new 
relationship, the "Homes" will be able to offer "sub-acute" care as well as 
intermediate and skilled nursing to its residents and patients. In an attempt 
to provide quality care opportunities to Older Adults who still reside in the 
local community setting, a respite or temporary care program has been 
begun at the Albemarle Home. Quality care, long the hallmark of the 
"Homes," is still the institution's main objective. 
III. During 1986-87, plans for institutional expansion and new development 
have moved forward at a rapid pace. "Ground-breaking" for a new 
Continuing Care Retirement Community in Winston-Salem will take place 
in the fall. The Homes' long-range plan includes the development of similar 
facilities in Asheville, Charlotte, and the East. 
The "Good News of Jesus Christ" is the presupposition upon which the "Homes" 
operates. In reaching out in service to Older Adults, the "Homes" offers concrete 
expression to the love of the Christ for all people. The support of North Carolina 
Baptists makes this ministry of love possible.

North Carolina Baptist College Report - 1987 

GARDNER-WEBB WINGATE MEREDITH CAMPBELL

MARS HILL CHOWAN WAKE FOREST 

1856 1848 1834 

A recent survey sent to more than 24,000 lay persons and pastors in North 
Carolina, revealed strongly positive attitudes toward Baptist colleges. 

The following summary of the survey's conclusions will interest our Baptist people 
in the churches and associations: 

1 . Almost 99 percent of those surveyed said Christian education should remain a 
high priority in North Carolina Baptist Life. 

2. More than 80 percent rated North Carolina Baptist colleges as outstanding or 
good. Ninety-five percent believe the quality of education is equal or superior 
to an education at a state school. 

3. The three main strengths of Baptist schools, according to the survey, are the 
quality of education offered, the Christian commitment of faculty and the 
spiritual emphasis on the campuses. The overwhelming weakness is the cost. 

4. Most said they learned about the colleges through the Biblical Recorder. The 
opinion was strong, however (65 percent), that Baptist students do not receive 
sufficient information about Baptist colleges through the local church. 

5. When asked about the percentage of Cooperative Program funds for Christian 
education, 45.5 percent answered that it is "About right," while 37.8 percent 
replies the percentage is "Not enough." 

-37- 



6. Respondents to the survey were 29 percent women and 40 percent lay persons. 
Eighty-four percent were from churches with memberships between 100 and 
999. 

Such positive attitudes encourage Baptist colleges to excel even more in service and 
cooperation with Baptist churches.

on Christian Higher Education.)

MORE ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST COLLEGES 

One Baptist leader has said that Baptist colleges deserve the "Light Under the 
Bushel Award." He meant, of course, that many of the finest, most interesting stories 
about Baptist colleges are not widely known. 

Everyone connects Baptist colleges and a superior experience in Christian 
education. Most would agree that there are other strong advantages for Baptist 
students who attend a North Carolina Baptist college. When young people and their 
parents are choosing a college together, here are some things to consider: 

THE TIME: Life after high school is still a time for growing, maturing, 
learning and planning for a full life as an adult. Going to college in a Christian 
environment can make a world of difference for a lifetime. The first experiences 
after leaving home can shape a life forever. 

THE SIZE: All of the Baptist colleges in North Carolina are small and manage- 
able. You can easily walk anywhere on campus. No one is overwhelmed by a 
"megaversity" environment. A new student, fresh from high school, does not get 
lost in the crowd. Classes are small. Teachers can know the names and faces of 
students, and are available to advise and counsel between classes. 
A LASTING FAMILY: Many years after graduation, former students still visit 
and write letters to favorite professors. Cherished friends in college often remain 
friends for a lifetime. More often than not students will choose a husband or 
wife while on a college campus. These are only some of the advantages of a Baptist 
college community of caring people. 

THE CALL TO CHRISTIAN SERVICE: In Baptist colleges the ideal of service 
to others remains strong in vocational planning. A sense of calling to a variety of 
service/leadership areas is emphasized, including church-related vocations. In a 
"me first" world, Baptist colleges are different in important ways. 
PREPARING FOR LIFE: Christian education prepares students for making a 
living. But more importantly, Christian education is the best preparation for 
spending a life. An excellent, broad-based education provides a sound foundation 
for a person's last job, as well as the first. 

THE ROLL CALL OF BAPTIST COLLEGES 

There are six educational institutions supported financially by the Baptist State 
Convention: Campbell, Chowan, Gardner-Webb, Mars Hill, Meredith and 
Wingate. 

Wake Forest, our oldest school, has a continuing "fraternal and voluntary" 
relationship with North Carolina Baptists and the Council on Christian Higher 
Education.

North Carolina Baptist Hospital Report 
to the Associations - 1987 



During the past year, Baptist Hospital admitted 22,973 patients for a total of 
186,321 days of patient care. More than 1,000 of those patients had heart surgery and 
27 received kidney transplants. During this period, the hospital also performed its 
first heart transplant and, as of June 1, 197, has performed four successful heart 
transplants. 

Approximately 1,000 persons with kidney stones have been treated with the 
lithotripter. The lithotripter has also been used to break up gallstones. Baptist 
Hospital was the first hospital in the United States to achieve this success. 

The Air Care Program, described as "a flying emergency room staffed with highly 
trained pilots and flight nurses," continues to save lives and to contribute to more 
rapid and complete recovery for many victims of trauma. For example, Air Care 
made it possible for a man whose arm was severed in a hay mowing accident to reach 
the hospital in time to have his arm reattached. 

Baptist Hospital is one of less than a half dozen medical centers in the nation 
routinely transplanting living bone tissue. A woman underwent this rare procedure 
to correct an arthritic condition in her hip where her bone tissue had died. Bone 
tissue with its own blood supply was successfully transplanted from her lower legs to 
the upper end of the right femur. 

In addition to those admitted to the hospital, 30,726 persons were seen in the out- 
patient clinics, 35,134 in the emergency department, and 196,556 in the Bowman 
Gray Department of Clinics. A total of 2,747 patients had outpatient surgery. 

During the past year, the Pastoral Care Department has continued to provide 
pastoral services for hospital patients, pastoral counseling, clinical pastoral education, 
and human enrichment events. In addition, the department, in cooperation with the 
Baptist State Convention, has offered the "Pastor's Sabbath" Program at Caraway 
Conference Center and has provided assistance to more than 100 pastors and their 
families through the Minister's Care Plan. Plans are being made to offer training in 
"Conflict Management," "Healing of Corporate Pain," and "Ministry to the Interim 
Church." 

Due to the change in the method and timing of the special offering, Baptist 
Hospital received during its past fiscal year the largest offering from the churches in 
its history. The last North Carolina Missions Offering in September of 1985 and the 
first Homes and Hospital Offering in May of 1986, together with designated gifts, 
brought the hospital a total of $474,662.00. Cooperative Program gifts to the hospital 
during the same fiscal year was $608,389.00, making our total receipts from the chur- 
ches $1,083,051.00. 

For these gifts and for all other continuing support and help from the Baptist 
churches, the hospital trustees, staff and patients are deeply grateful.

Baptist Children's Homes of NC Report to the Association 

In behalf of Dr. Blackwell, the staff, trustees and children in care, we gratefully 
acknowledge your support through your prayers, concern and financial resources. 
Four major emphases occurred during this exciting year at the Children's Homes: 
1. There was a reorganization of group care on the Mills Home campus in order 
to more effectively deliver services to children and families. Intentionalized 



-39- 



Services will focus on specific tasks needed by our clients in order to regain 
their ability to function as a whole or independently in society. 

2. Moody Home Ministries, an intensive program of "friendship therapy" to 
troubled girls, was opened in Macon County. We are grateful to our Lord and 
to people of Western N.C. in realizing this dream in 1987. 

3. The process of long-range planning, which in today's complex world of child 
care, can only extend up to five years was begun. As a basis for this LRP, 
accreditation by the National Association of Homes for Children was awarded 
in 1987. We are only one of three NAHC accredited child care institutions in 
North Carolina. We believe you share in this accomplishment. 

4. Partnerships in cooperation with the WMU, Personal Evangelism, Baptist 
Men and the Department of Aging have been both rewarding and exciting. 
We are grateful for their willingness to assist in informing the Baptists of 
North Carolina on this child care ministry. 

We are delighted to report that more than fifty of our youth made a profession of 
faith in Jesus Christ during this church year. 

Our commitment to you is to be good stewards of that which is entrusted to our care 
as we offer quality services on four group care campuses, eight emergency care 
homes, in our foster homes, at our theraupeutic camping program, through the child 
development center and at our maternity home. OUR MISSION REMAINS FIRM: 
TO HELP HURTING CHILDREN AND ASSIST BROKEN FAMILIES. We en- 
courage you to help us by promoting the 1988 Homes & Hospital Offering in May 
and Cooperative Program stewardship. 

UPDATE/WESTERN AREA 

Again our Lord has blessed us with a marvelous new facility, the Moody Home in 
the beautiful Iotla Valley of Macon County. Even more beautiful is the ministry 
being offered to teenage girls needing a level of care beyond that which is available in 
other services of the Homes. Mary Lewis and Gary Bruin, the directors of Moody 
Home, are well trained and gifted in leading this service. 

Other services in the Western Area continue to do well. The Broyhill Home at 
Clyde, which includes the Haywood Emergency Care Cottage, the maternity home in 
Asheville, and the Thermal Belt Youth Shelter in Forest City tend to have a waiting 
list in recent months. 

The children whom we serve need our help more than ever. However, we have a 
dedicated staff of child care and social workers to meet the challenge of caring for 
some of God's loveliest children. Through your prayers and generous gifts, we con- 
tinue to be laborers together for God and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve 
with you.

Baptist Foundation Report to the Associations - 1987 

You might call Frank Neville handicapped. He spends most of his time in a wheel- 
chair. But he denies that he is handicapped, and instead has utilized his limited 
mobility as opportunity to witness. Each day he invites neighbors and acquaintances, 
one at a time, into his home for coffee. There he talks with them about Jesus, and 
Frank has been thrilled and amazed at their expressions of appreciation for his 
concern for their spiritual welfare. 



-40- 



Frank has determined that he will never stop witnessing, and his financial and 
estate plans have been so prepared as to insure that he will always be a part of winning 
the lost to Christ. He transferred valuable land into trust with the Baptist Foundation. 
Until his death, he will receive income earned by the trust. After that time, all income 
will be paid to Carolina Baptist Association to be used for Spanish mission ministries; 
scholarships for youngsters to attend summer camp, for students studying for Christian 
vocations, and for persons going on volunteer mission trips; for training and resources 
for associational leadership; and for camp development. Frank Neville, like others 
who are faithful stewards now, wishes to continue that commitment when he is no 
longer here. v 

The Foundation promotes endowment of Christian causes with an assurance 
drawn from its experience with donors that such planning for the future in no way 
minimizes "now" witnessing and giving. Just the opposite has been the case; the faith- 
ful steward is faithful in every area. The statistics, dollars and facts of this report 
are truly about the people whose impassioned concern for mission and ministry has 
resulted in positive action. 

In 1986 new trust agreements were prepared for 93 persons. Their gifts to initiate 
these truths totaled $1,181,288. Many of the agreements provide for and anticipate 
the addition of funds in the future; thus, it is difficult to assess the long-term benefit 
to Baptist work provided through the trusts. Assistance was given to dozens of persons 
in preparing their wills, all of whom included trusts through their estate for nearly 
every cause supported by Southern Baptists. 

One imaginative concept employed in several trusts and wills has been "Give it 
Twice." A trustor provides that family members receive income earned by the trust 
until they have received an amount equal to the principal placed in trust. Then, 
after the family has received the full amount, the income thereafter is paid to Baptist 
causes selected by the trustor in the trust agreement. He has denied his family nothing ! 
They have received it all, but the principal is still intact and the second time around 
the income will support Kingdom work. 

Because of the 1986 tax reform legislation, certain types of trusts have taken on 
new significance. The Retirement Unitrust has become a vehicle for partially re- 
placing the IRA. This trust is especially attractive for professional persons and others 
in middle years for supplementing other pension plans. 

Many local churches chose to use the Foundation as trustee for funds which they 
were holding for future needs. Investment of those funds with the Foundation can, 
in some cases, result in greater income for the church. Conversely, since the funds 
are pooled and since churches can recall the funds, if they are withdrawn during a 
depressed market, principal returned to the church could be reduced. It is important 
that churches recognize that the Foundation's first objective is to assist individuals 
in estate stewardship. The motivation for using the Foundation must be the making 
of a gift to a Baptist cause. The Foundation does not operate as a bank or investment 
institution. However, one exciting realization for the church is that investment 
through the Foundation allows their funds to be a part of "family" and to be available 
for "family" use, if they desire. 

In cooperation with the state convention, the Foundation established in the last 
year a credit line of $3,000,000 for church loans. The Board of Directors took action 
to implement recommendations of its study committee, resulting in addition to the 
staff of a director of administration to direct the church loan and student loan pro- 
grams, as well as trust management. The Board also approved construction of office 
facilities for the Foundation near the Baptist Building, with plans to begin construction 
in September 1987. 

Assets of the Foundation have increased to more than $13,000,000. These dollars 
are expressions of concern made by Baptist stewards. They are the very same persons 
who, like Frank Neville, witness and give daily, that the lost, the needy, the hurting 
people of the world might know Jesus. 



The Biblical Recorder Report - 1987 



There's good news and bad news ! 

The bad news is that during 1987 there, have been some very embarrassing things 
happen which hindered the work and witness of Christians across our state, the 
nation and the world. 

The good news is that Baptists have done more, given more and cared more about 
a lost and needy world than ever before. And it was reported in the Biblical Recorder. 

The state Baptist paper for North Carolina always tries to tell it like it is — the good, 
the bad, the victories and the warts — with an emphasis on the good because there is 
so much good being done by our people as they take seriously the Great Commission 
from our Lord. 

Some Baptists are well-informed, some misinformed, some uninformed. The Recorder 
tries each week to present the news and activities of Baptists so that all will have the 
opportunity to be the best informed. As our state grows and there are more challenges 
every day for witness and ministry, our Baptist people need to be at their very best 
with information and insight into the situations. Never in the history of North 
Carolina has there been a greater moment for Baptists to make known the Gospel and 
help people live in the manner of Jesus. 

Readership is strong, but we want every reader and subscriber possible so that more 
Baptists can know the opportunities and victories within our fellowship. The paper is 
a bargain— only $5.00 per year for the Church Budget Plan! For half the price of a 
first-class postage stamp, the Recorder comes into Baptist homes each week. 

For the sixth consecutive year there will be NO INCREASE in the subscription 
rates. Despite the fact that second-class postage costs went up more than $90,000 in 
1987, the Recorder directors have agreed to leave the subscription prices as they are so 
that the greatest number of Baptists can benefit from the paper at the lowest costs. 

If your church does not have the Budget Plan, we urge you to consider it for 1988. 
Special introductory offers are available. Please contact:

The American Bible Society Report 

The year of 1986 was a year of great advances for the Bible cause, not only in the 
United States, but around the world. 

Demand for the Word of God has resulted in the United Bible Societies sharing 
a total of 600,128,459 Bibles, New Testaments, scripture portions and selections with 
men, women and children who speak hundreds of different languages throughout 
the world. 

We are grateful that God gave so many opportunities to share His message of peace 
and salvation with people everywhere. 

The construction of a new printing plant, Amnity Printing Press in China, will 
give priority to the production of Bibles for the Chinese people. 

The more than two and one-half million scriptures distributed throughout Iraq, 
Jordan, Lebanon and Syria during 1986 gave further cause for praising God for 

-42- 



providing open channels in this troubled area of the world to share His message of 
love and hope. 

These and many other achievements have been made possible with your prayers 
and offerings. 

In the name of the Giver of all good things, let's give our continued support to the 
American Bible Society that millions of people may receive His Word and have the 
opportunity to follow Him. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Brooks Boone 
American Bible Society Representative 

Seminary Extension Report 

North Carolina Baptists and the Seminary Extension have a long history of 
working together. They joined forces 37 years ago and for the last 13 years North 
Carolina Baptists have been the largest state of any state in the U.S. in Seminary Ex- 
tension studies. 

The Seminary Extension offers 70 different courses in the areas of Biblical studies, 
Theology, Pastoral Leadership and music. Four basic diplomas are available; they 
are: Pastoral Ministries, Educational Ministries, Biblical Studies and Growth in 
Ministries. 

In addition, there is one advanced diploma in General Studies. The Missions 
Department will reimburse part of the cost for those that request it which makes the 
average cost per student approximately $20.00. 

You can study individually or in local centers when offered. Numerous colleges of- 
fer credit toward degree programs. 

For more information contact the associational office. 



History Report 

The 1986-87 associational year began with the resignation of our Director of 
Missions, Mr. Leonard C. Morgan, Jr. He resigned in August and left the first of 
September to work on the Home Mission Field in Minnesota. 

So, the long process of finding a new Director of Missions began once again. This 
time the process was a little different. A Director of Missions Search Committee of 
five persons was nominated by the Nominating Committee and approved by the 
Executive Committee. The job of this committee was to bring one person at a time 
before the Executive Committee for consideration. The Search Committee consisted 
of Mr. Ed Hunter, Chairman; Rev. David Sheriff, Rev. Presley Morris, Mrs. Linda 
Griffith and Mrs. Opal McDougald. 

In March of 1987 the Search Committee nominated Rev. Daniel Whetstine to serve 
as Director of Missions for the Yancey Baptist Association. At a special meeting of the 
association in April of 1987, Daniel Whestine was elected as Director of Missions. He 
began this position on May 1, 1987. It seems that the Search Committee did an ex- 
cellent job in their search. 

In November of 1987 David Mauney from the First Baptist Church in Burnsville 
made a volunteer mission trip to Kenya. He stayed in Kenya two weeks in the home of 
Mike and Charlotte Liningstone, Southern Baptist Missionaries in Kitui, Kenya. 
While there, he helped install a water pump, plumb the house, install bathroom fix- 
tures, start a room addition to the house, build church pews, and many other things. 
He also visited and witnessed in the homes of Africans and attended a Kenyan Baptist 
Church. 

-43- 



In February of 1987 Mr. Nat Howell from the West Burnsville Baptist Church 
made his fourth volunteer mission trip to Togo. While there, he worked as an iron 
worker and helped build a bridge. He says that one of his biggest benefits in all his 
volunteer mission trips has been the awareness of the tremendous needs on the 
mission field and the great work that our missionaries on the field are doing. He has 
also gained a deeper appreciation for the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon 
Christmas Offering and the World Hunger Offering along with the awareness that 
our missionaries could not possibly be on the field in the number that they currently 
are without support from these sources. 

In May of 1987 Yancey Baptist Association was represented in the Children's Bible 
Drill and the Youth Bible Drill by six young people from West Burnsville Baptist 
Church. Joey Willis, Susan Hullett, and LeAnn Griffith were winners in the 
Children's Bible Drill. Susan Crout, Kevin Hullett, and Shannon Harding were 
state winners in the Youth Bible Drill. 

We have one new pastor in the Yancey Baptist Association, Rev. Luther Spivey at 
Bee Log Baptist Church. Since he has been there, attendance in Sunday School and 
the Worship Service has more than doubled. Two of our churches are currently 
without pastors. Rev. Daniel Whetstine resigned from Shoal Creek Baptist Church to 
serve as Director of Missions for Yancey Baptist Association. Rev. Glen Freeman has 
resigned from South Estatoe Baptist Church. Remember to pray for these two churches 
as they strive to find a pastor. 

Great things are possible for Yancey Baptist Association. With the support of the 
people of the Yancey Baptist Association and under the leadership of God, Daniel 
Whetstine as Director of Missions can help us accomplish great things. Give him your 
prayers and support. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lavonne Murdock 
Associational Clerk

Proceedings 



of the 

Yancey Baptist Association 

Theme: Laity in Action 

Scripture: "For we are the labourers together with God." 
I Corinthians 3:9 

TUESDAY AFTERNOON, AUGUST 2, 1988 
FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, BURNSVILLE 

1. The 110th Annual Session of the Yancey Baptist Association opened with a 
piano prelude by Linda Denny. The host church was First Baptist Church, 
Burnsville. David Sheriff, Moderator and pastor of South Estatoe Baptist Church, 
presided. 

2. Wade and Wanda Harding sang "When the World Looks at Me" for a Call 
to Worship. 

3. Rev. Richard Muri, pastor of the host church, led in prayer and welcomed 
everyone to his church. 

4. Blair Harvey, pastor of Crabtree Baptist Church, interpreted the theme 
"Laity in Action - In the Home". He read Proverbs 22:1-6. A summary of his 
interpretation follows: 

God has us in the school of life and we will never graduate. Through good 
times and bad times, God continues to school and teach us. 

Scriptures teach us that a good deal of what an adult becomes is the result 
of what they learned in childhood. We are prone when we follow someone to pick 
up on their bad points rather than their good points. 
Three principles the Bible gives on parenting: 

1. Parenting must begin at an early age. Train young children. We cannot wait 
until they begin school or are teenagers. The young years are the years of greatest 
impressions. In the early years, they have the greatest interest in life - before life 
gets hard. In the early years - before they leave home - they have a greater zeal 
for life. 

2. The Art of Parenting. Too many parents send their children to church to be 
trained. They send them to school to learn and to be disciplined. But this must 
begin at home - not left for the church or school. Too many parents today are 
using psychology rather than theology in rearing their children. Theology is the way 
to rear children. We must give them an example to follow - not just try to teach 
them. The responsibility for parenting belongs to both the mothers and the fathers. 
The fathers, as priests of the home, will be held responsible for their children. 
We need to urge them to come to Christ. No child who comes to the altar is too 
young to receive Christ. We must chastise our children. This is God's way. Chastise 
means to correct them physically. "Spare the rod and spoil the child" is a true 
statement. 

3. The Aim of Parenting - Salvation of their souls. Too many parents are more 
concerned about their children wearing the latest fashions - getting them a TV, VCR 
or other material things - than they are about the salvation of their souls. If you train 
children as they should be trained, then no matter where they go or how far away 
they stray, they can not get away from their training. We need to make it hard for 
our children to go to hell. 

-16- 



The Aim is satisfaction. If we are not satisfied with our Christian life, then we 
need to get right with God. The most awesome responsibility anyone has is the 
responsibility of being a parent. There are not many things we can take with us 
when we go to heaven, but if we do it right, we can take our children. 

5. The printed program was approved as the agenda with three changes: 
Maurice Cooper will be here for Training Union rather than Doris Morgan, Tommy 
Puckett will speak for Brotherhood rather than David Langford, and Betty Hooks, 
Volunteer Coordinator for Broughton Hospital, will be given time to speak when 
available. 

6. Mr. Sheriff appointed Cecil Huskins, Presley Morris, and Linda Griffith to 
serve on the Hospitality Committee. 

7. Lavonne Murdock presented an amendment to Article VI of the Constitution 
as follows: 

PROPOSED AMENDMENT 
ARTICLE VI — OFFICERS AND THEIR DUTIES 

The Association shall have the following officers: The Moderator and Vice 
Moderator shall be nominated from the floor and shall be elected by a majority 
vote at each annual meeting. Associational Secretary shall serve as Clerk. Other 
officers shall be nominated by the Nominating Committee and shall be elected by 
majority vote at each annual meeting. All officers and leaders shall be active 
members in their local churches. 

8. David Sheriff presented a section 14 to Article VI to be added to the constitu- 
tion as follows: 

Section 14. The association shall elect 3 trustees, and at all times there shall be 
three (3) trustees who hold title to all associational property for the benefit of those of 
the association who adhere and submit to the regular order of the association, and 
who follow the established usages, customs, doctrines and practices of the association. 
The trustees shall execute all contracts, deeds, mortgages or other instruments when 
authorized to do so by the association in conference or under the order of the 
Executive Committee. The trustees shall serve until their successors are duly elected 
by the association in conference. Upon the death, resignation or inability to serve, of 
any trustee, a successor shall be elected by the association upon recommendation by 
the Nominating Committee at the Annual Meeting. In the event that a vacancy 
occurs, the Nominating Committee shall have authority to fill such vacancy for the re- 
mainder of the associational year. 

9. David Sheriff recommended that we have a committee made up of people 
from churches interested in the Brazil-North Carolina Partnership. He asked that 
each church interested in the partnership give him a name of someone from their 
church to serve on this committee. 

10. Mr. Hunter made the motion that such a committee be formed with one 
person from each interested church. Lester Murphey seconded. Motion carried. 

11. David Sheriff introduced Miss Tensie Bailey, who has attended all but one 
Annual Meeting of the Yancey Baptist Association for 60 years. 

12. Mr. Sheriff asked for all people on the program to be as conscious as 
possible of time so we can stay on time with the program. 

13. Jan High, WMU Consultant with the Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina, spoke on the history of WMU in its 100th anniversary. She read Hebrews 
13:7-8. One significant statement she made was, "If we can get the people in our 
churches to lead at the point of their gifts and to follow at the point of other's 
gifts, we could win the world." 

14. Mrs. Orlena Anglin, Associational Music Director and Music Director at 
Bolens Creek Baptist Church, led the congregation in singing "All Hail the Power of 
Jesus' Name." 

J -17- 



15. Garland Hendricks from Gardner Webb College came to speak on Christian 
higher education. He introduced Ray Hardy, Recruiter for Gardner Webb, and 
stated that he would be available to talk with anyone interested in Gardner Webb 
College during the supper hour. 

Mr. Hendricks talked about how the seven Baptist Colleges in North Carolina 
had started and how they had progressed. He stated that Christian Higher 
Education is trying to get our young people to understand the mind of Christ and to 
get them to live their lives for Christ. A young person does not stand much of a 
chance today without a good education. An educated person who does not have 
Christian conviction and moral stamina can be a detriment to society rather than a 
help. 

16. Beth Joyner, Music Director of First Baptist Church, sang "They Could 
Not." 

17. Roll Call of churches revealed 14 churches represented with 97 members 
present. There were 6 visitors for a total present of 103. 

18. Orlena Anglin led the congregation in singing "He Leadeth Me". 

19. Betty Hooks, Volunteer Service Coordinator from Broughton Hospital, spoke 
on needs of patients that money or the state can not provide. Some of those are'; 

1. Additional outings and visits. 

2. Sponsors for patients. You can sponsor a patient for as little as $5 per month. 

3. Donations to the cheer fund to help in providing things not otherwise 
provided for. 

4. Volunteers to teach patients in the literacy program. 

5. Individual volunteers to work one on one with patients. 

6. Material things such as pictures, tables, lamps, sofas, etc. to make the 
institution more home-like. 

7. Good clothing for patients who do not have clothes. 

8. Donations to the Santa Claus fund. Many patients would not receive anything 
for Christmas without this fund. 

20. Cleve Wilkie, Columnist for Charity and Children, spoke on Baptist Children's 
Homes and the safe and secure investment we make by supporting the Baptist Children's 
Homes. There are doctors, nurses, teachers, preachers, farmers, mechanics, and many 
professions that come from the lives of those reared in our Baptist Children's Homes. 

There would be no such thing as Baptist Children's Homes 'or colleges or hospitals) 
without Baptists cooperating to achieve the same things. There are some things that a 
church can not do on its own. It takes Baptist churches working together. 

Every Christian has some talent or ability that, if turned over to God, can be multi- 
plied to His glory like he multiplied two fish and loaves. 

21. Mr. Muri gave instructions for supper and Mr. Harold Lusk led in the benedic- 
tion and blessing. 

TUESDAY EVENING 

22. The Tuesday evening session began with an organ prelude by Linda Denny. 

23. The combined choir of the churches of the association sang "Hosanna" as a 
Call to Worship. 

24. Rev. Lawrence Glenn, pastor of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, led in 
prayer. 

25. Roll call of churches showed that 15 churches were represented. There were four 
visitors. Total number present was 156. 

26. The youth of the association brought the Theme Interpretation through a skit 
demonstrating ways we can help the needy and lost in our community.

27. Lester Murphey, Chairman of the Building Committee, brought a report. He 
stated that one of their major goals was to have an adequate building for an 
associational office. He asked everyone to join hands and pray that working together 
we would accomplish this goal. 

28. Sue Fitzgerald, Director of the Center for Christian Education Ministries at 
Mars Hill College, spoke on the function of the center. She stated that it was a re- 
source center with resources to supplement those available in our churches or 
associational office. She showed examples of resources available at the center. 

29. The First Baptist Church Choir sang "Like a River Glorious". 

30. Clarence Stinson from Bolens Creek Baptist Church sang "Why Have You 
Chosen Me?" 

31. Boyd O'Neal, with the Foreign Mission Board and former missionary to 
Brazil for 38 years, spoke. He will be the coordinator of the Brazil-North Carolina 
Project. 

He stated that he feels that our association is on the verge of some very important 
decisions - involvement in the North Carolina/Brazil Partnership. He read I Corinthians 
6:9-20. A summary of his talk follows: 

The matter of our witnessing for Christ is not an option. Jesus has the right to 
come down to any of us, point his finger in our face and say, "You are not your 
own. You have been bought with a price." Whatever we have has been placed in our 
care and belongs to God and needs to be used for Him. 

Our lives contain flaws. There are no flaws in Jesus life. 
Because we have been saved, we have a Holy mandate from God to share it with 
others. If we want our Cooperative Program funds and Lottie Moon Christmas 
offering to increase, we need to put out people on the foreign mission fields and let 
them bring back to us what is going on and they will increase. 

We need more volunteers on the mission field. Partnership missions is our church 
linked to a church in Brazil, exchanging communication and our church sending volun- 
teers to the partner church for one or two weeks. The time is here for lay persons to help 
in Brazil. Our association has a partnership with an association in Brazil. We need 
pastor's and laypersons to go as volunteer missionaries to Brazil - our young people, our 
women, our men - anyone who feels God is leading them to go. 

When we know Jesus Christ as saviour, we have a mandate from God to share it 
around the world. We need to pray to God: "God, I offer myself to go to Brazil. If you 
don't want me to go, close the doors." If we pray that prayer, we may find ourselves in 
Brazil. 

32. Orlena Anglin led the congregation in singing "Take the Name of Jesus with 
You." 

33. Joe Lennon, Director of the Christian Action League spoke on problems of 
gambling, drunk driving, abortion, AIDS, and homosexuality. 

34. David Sheriff led in the benediction. 

WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 3, 1988 
SOUTH ESTATOE BAPTIST CHURCH 

35. The Wednesday morning session began with a piano prelude by Barbara 
Street. 

36. The Huskins family sang "No One Wants to Work in My Field". 

37. In the absence of the Moderator and Vice Moderator, Harold Lusk was called 
on to preside. Steve Clark led in prayer and welcomed everyone to South Estatoe 
Baptist Church. 

38. Grey Fisher, pastor of Shoal Creek Baptist Church, interpreted the theme. A 
summary follows: 



-19- 



Three practical suggestions for involving laity in the local church: 

1. We are going to have to get back to promoting "body life." The church is a 
body and when one part suffers, the whole suffers. Every Christian should be in full- 
time Christian service. There is no place for part-time Christian service in the 
church. 

2. We need to discover our spiritual gifts. The church is a body, and as a 
whole can reach out and minister to the world. 

3. We must develope a servant's attitude, "For we are laborers together with 
God." 

39. Lavonne Murdock, Associational Clerk called the association into a business 
session. 

Presley Morris made the motion that the two amendments to the constitution be 
accepted. Cecil Huskins seconded. Motion carried. 

Lavonne Murdock, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, stated that 
William O. Riddle, Jack Mcintosh, and Mrs. Jerry Holcombe had been nominated 
to serve as trustees, and asked that these names be added to her report in the 
Book of Reports. 

Steve Clark made the motion that we accept the Book of Reports with the additions. 
Lester Murphey seconded. Motion carried. This vote elected the officers nominated by 
the Nominating Committee and approved the budget for the coming year. 

The floor was opened for nominations for moderator. Presley Morris nominated 
Howard Buchanan. Lester Murphey seconded. Mr. Buchanan was elected by accla- 
mation. 

40. Harold Lusk introduced Laura Mae Hilliard, Associational Sunday School 
Director, to speak on Sunday School. A summary follows: 

In the last five years, we have had a decline in Sunday School enrollment. 
Our average attendance is less than five years ago. 

We are in the "people" business. That is what Sunday School is all about. When the 
pastor and people in a church decide they are interested in people, the church grows, 
evangelism grows, and Sunday School grows. 

She read Deut. 31:12, the scripture for Sunday School for 1988-1989. The 
theme is "Gather the People." Miss Hilliard asked Mr. Melvin to lead in a prayer, 
thanking God for what had been accomplished and dedicating us to his work in the com- 
ing year. 

41. William Sillerman spoke on the great needs in Western North Carolina for more 
beds in our Baptist Retirement Homes and the growing needs in that aspect of ministry. 

42. Orlena led the congregation in singing "Blessed Assurance". 

43. Linda Griffith, Music Director at Laurel Branch Baptist Church, sang "Praise the 
Lord, He Never Changes". 

44. Maurice Cooper played a medley of "When the Roll is Called up Yonder" and 
"When They Ring Those Golden Bells" as a piano solo. He is Church Training Director 
with the State Baptist Convention of North Carolina. He then spoke on church training. 
A summary follows: 

Church Training is Discipleship training. He read the story of the Good Samaritan 
from Luke 10. The Good Samaritan had concern - he cared. He used what he had to help 
the man, and He shouldered the load and took him to the inn to be taken care of. 
How does this apply to Church Training? 

1. We have to have compassion. We have to care. We must begin now to develop 
our children and youth to be the leaders of the church tomorrow. 

2. We must shoulder the load in our church and see that things are done - that 
discipleship training is done with the children and youth. If we don't begin 
training our children and youth now, think of what our churches will be like in 10 
to 20 years. 



-20- 



3. We need to be concerned for the future. Two hundred and thirty-nine 
Baptists join a cult every day. We need to be concerned about this and train and 
disciple our young people to live out their faith now and in the future. 

45. Jim Lambert, Administrative Associate for Minister Support with the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina, came to speak on State Missions. A summary 
follows: 

The proclaiming of the gospel and the living out of the gospel needs to be our 
number one priority. Some of the priorities in the coming year in state missions 
are the military, more ministry to the blind, and capital needs at Caswell. There 
are tremendous needs all over the state and right here in Yancey County. We need to 
make sure that we remain attached to the vinethat we are truly laborers together 
with God. 

46. Orlena Anglin led the congregation in singing "I Am Thine, O Lord." 

47. Howard Buchanan, pastor at Young's Chapel Baptist Church, preached the 
Annual Sermon. He read 2 Timothy 1:5-12. A summary follows: 

We all have a gift and whatever our gift is, we need this message from 2 Timothy. 
It was difficult in Timothy's day to establish a church. It is just as difficult today. 
Here Paul is writing to encourage Timothy. God's message to us today is one of en- 
couragement. 

1. We need to remember our faith and commitment to Jesus Christ. We need to 
look back at our conversion experience. Timothy had had a great heritage, and so do 
many of us. We need to remember our Christian heritage. 

2. We need to rekindle the fire - to stir up the gift of God that is in us. 

3. We must be faithful to Jesus and his words. 

48. Steve Clark gave instructions for lunch. 

49. Howard Buchanan led in the benediction. 

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON 

50. Orlena Anglin opened the session with a piano prelude. 

51. The Cecil Huskins family sang "Victory Was Won at Calvary". 

52. Presley Morris gave a Hospitality Committee report. 

53. Steve Clark led in prayer. 

54. Daniel Whetstine, Director of Missions of the Yancey Baptist Association, 
brought the Theme Interpretation. A summary follows: 

He read Mathew 28:19-20. He said that maybe one of the reasons we have so few 
laypersons involved in missions is that churches do not teach missions enough. God 
commanded us to go, but who should go? Every Christian is to go, not just pastors. 
How can I go? Volunteer missions, such as the Brazil-North Carolina Partnership is 
one way to go. He encouraged WMU to go back to their churches and make Brazil- 
North Carolina Partnership a project and make plans to send the pastor and lay- 
persons to Brazil. 

Why go? When we go, we must first teach others about Christ. This is a message 
that laypersons can deliver. 

What are we to teach as we go? We are to teach the word of God. If we follow 
God's instructions, we will have the power of Christ in our lives. 

He urged us to pray and ask the Lord if we should go to Brazil. This is one way we 
can carry out the Great Commission. 

55. Tommy Puckett, Associate in the Brotherhood Department of the State Baptist 
Convention of North Carolina, talked about Brotherhood. A summary follows: 

Brotherhood is involving men and boys in missions - mission action and missions 
education. Brotherhood is a ministry organization. The purposes of Brotherhood are: 

1. To involve men in mission action in their church, community, association, state, 
country and on foreign fields. 



-21- 



2. To learn missions - Men learn better by doing, by being involved. Once they are 
involved, they want to learn about what is going on. 

3. We all have to be involved in a personal ministry. We all have different gifts, but we 
can all serve God with our gifts. 

4. To pray - We get our power by praying. If we have faith, God will open the doors 
for us. 

5. To interpret the work of the local church. Baptist Men are involved in different 
ministries. Some of these are: 

1. Disaster relief 

2. Local projects - such as using their abilities in building new churches 

3. Overseas projects, such as Togo, Poland, Brazil 

4. Agricultural ministries 

5. Lay led revivals 

6. Lay renewal 

7. Medical - doctors, dentists, etc. go overseas to help people there. 

56. Orlena Anglin led the congregation in singing "There Shall Be Showers of 
Blessing". 

57. A roll call of churches revealed 12 churches represented with a total present of 78. 
There were four visitors. 

58. Gary Blunt, Chaplain of the North Carolina Department of Correction, Yancey 
County Unit, spoke. A summary follows: 

There is probly no place in the world where you find as much loneliness, as much 
hurt, as much hate, as much bitterness, as much anger, as much resentment, as you find 
in prisons. The church is the only body that can deal with these things. The only way 
people's lives are going to be touched and changed is through Jesus Christ. In prison, 
men have the time to reevaluate themselves. The church needs to be there to minister to 
these people. The time to work with these people is when they are incarcerated. Prisons 
need prayer and they need people to set an example. 

59. Albert Woods, Church Planter with the Home Mission Board, talked about Home 
Missions. His main topic was "Why do we need more churches in the United States?" 
He gave three reasons. 

1. One hundred million in the United States do not go to church anywhere. Today 
there is one church for every 6,200 people. The goal of Southern Baptist is to start 50,000 
new churches by the year 2000. 

2. Existing churches usually do not grow much after 10 years. New churches grow 
faster. 

3. People need churches where they are, worshipping in there own language where 
they are comfortable. 

60. Martha Ann Corn from Bolens Creek Baptist Church sang "Just to Call You 
My Father." 

61. Victor Cole, Director of Evangelism Development Department of the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina brought the closing message. He read John 15: 
1-2, 3-5, 7-8. A summary follows: 

The church is the medium through which mankind can pass into the kingdom of 
God. The world is much less evangelized today than it was before. We have not kept 
upwith population growth. Bold Mission Thrust is not possible until it becomes per- 
sonal. "If it is to be, it is up to me." 

In 1987, Southern Baptists hit a 40-year low in baptisms. The general tendency 
has been a decline in baptisms. We are not getting the job done in reaching people 
for Jesus Christ. In the Northern part of the United States, Southern Baptists are 
a fraction of 1 % of the people. 

We need the burden to be a personal soul winner now. The members of the church 
must be involved in evangelism. Evangelism is one-to-one sharing of Jesus Christ in 
the power of the Holy Spirit with a lost person. We are not doing this. 

-22- 



Each of us needs to have a list of persons that we personally try to win to Christ. 
How? 

1. Make a list of all our family, friends, acquaintances, and people we come in 
contact with. 

2. We then go over the list and determine as much as possible which are not 
Christian. These become our personal list of people to witness to and pray for. This 
way each individual can reach his own world for Jesus Christ. 

We can begin to show our love for these people by meeting their needs - physical, 
emotional, etc. We begin by loving people into the Kingdom of God - not coercing 
them or trying to force them into the kingdom. The lost are not reached until some- 
body prays for them by name, so we must pray for them. After we let a person know 
that we care for them and pray for them consistently, then we may need to witness. 
But very few persons are "one-shot-deals" in evangelism. 

If Saul could be reached, then this should give us confidence that anyone, given 
the right set of circumstances, can be reached. 

Vital evangelism is always person to person. We already know a lot of people who 
could be reached if we really care. Winning others to Christ requires a total commit- 
ment of our whole life to Jesus Christ. 

It's a lost world, the only way we can make them a part of the Kingdom of God is 
to love them into it. 

62. Orlena Anglin led the congregation in singing "Amazing Grace." 

63. Howard Buchanan led in the benediction.

Hospitality Report 

The churches and messengers of the 1 10th Annual Meeting of the Yancey Baptist 
Association express our appreciation to the First Baptist Church and South Estatoe 
Baptist Church for providing their church facilities and the scrumptious meals, and 
to the ladies and men who did all the work in preparing and serving the meals. 
Especially those who kept our cups filled with iced tea, Kool-Aid etc. Thank you for 
your thoughtfulness.

Director of Missions Report 



I could take the time in this report to tell you about the 2500 newsletters 
that we have published, or the thousands of pieces of literature that were mailed, or 
the 30,000 plus miles that I've driven. 

But, that doesn't tell you the whole story. To get the true picture of where our 
association is today, you would need to be with us in our Executive Committee 
Meetings and sense the unity and Christian commitment as we vote our convictions 
on the big and sometimes sensitive issues. You would need to hear the baptism and 
missions giving reports from the churches. You must visit the churches and sense the 
excitement as they worship and work together for the cause of Christ. 

We have a vision! A vision of reaching people for Christ around the world. Our 
vision is strong and is based on our belief in the power of the risen Lord. This 
vision will become a reality if we continue to work together. Remember the words of 
our Lord, "... All things are possible to him that believeth." To sum up the past 
year, Yancey Baptist Association is alive and well! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Daniel Whetstine 
Director of Missions 

Moderator's Report 

This has been a very enjoyable year for me to have served as your moderator. 
I want to thank each of you for making it such a rewarding year for me in 
my Christian pilgrimage. 

I feel we have had a good year together. 

Brother Daniel has worked hard to give us unity, direction and vision. I know 
that many of you have been working alongside him to accomplish the work which 
could not have been completed without your cooperation, patience and under- 
standing. 

I want to thank you for your encouragement, love and cooperation with me as I 
attempted to serve you. 

I am looking forward to the coming year. 

Let us claim the promise, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth 
me." Also, as someone has said, "Attempt great things for God and expect great 
things from God." 

May the Lord richly bless you 

Respectfully submitted, 
David O. Sheriff, Moderator 

Sunday School Report 

This report was due in the office before all the church letters were received. 
Therefore, I find it impossible to make a complete report concerning any gains 
or losses in Sunday School membership and average attendance. This is very 
important information and I urge you to consider these figures when available. 

"Touch Lives... Change People" was the theme for this year. This theme of 
course is a part of the challenge 10/90 emphasis. Luke 19:10 includes the words of our 
Lord Jesus Christ. "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which 
was lost." The theme picked up on the spirit and message of the One we serve. 
During the year an effort was made to keep us aware of the theme and what Sunday 
School is all about. 0£ 



We centered our efforts on one major project, The Sunday School Workshop. 
This meeting was held on May 23, 7:00 -9:30 p.m. with First Baptist Church. 
Five conferences were provided and led by our State Sunday School workers. We 
are grateful to God and our State workers, Mr. Robert Stewart, Mr. Johnny 
Ross, Mr. Phil Stone, Miss Janice Haywood and Mr. Bob Goode, for making 
possible this experience for our Sunday School leadership. One hundred nine of our 
Sunday School workers were there to recieve information and inspiration. Their pre- 
sence was very important because without them the effort would have failed. 

The Assist Team Members, Rev. Lester Murphey, Rev. David Sheriff, Mr. 
Herschel Holcombe, Mrs. Jess Styles, Mrs. Ray Strickland, Mrs. Harold Lusk, 
Mrs. Joseph Godwin, Mrs. Doyle Dale and Mrs. Dwight Boone, Jr., have done a 
good job. Five attended the training session at Ridgecrest. All were actively 
involved in the workshop. 

Southern Baptist Sunday School during the year 1989 will march to this theme - 
"Gather the People." The scripture is found in Deuteronomy 31:12. 



The goals are: 

Sunday School Enrollment 350,000 

Churches with Outreach Bible Study 8,000 
Workers/members prepared for evangelistic teaching, 

witnessing, and ministry 200,000 

New Sunday Schools started 1,800 

Churches with weekly workers meetings 9,000 

Sunday School Leadership Diplomas earned 6,000 



As you can see, the very heart of these goals are people. This is in keeping with our 
marching orders. The year 1988-89 offers to the Sunday School of Yancey Baptist 
Association an opportunity to hear and heed God's command, "Gather the people to- 
gether, men and women, and children, and the stranger that is within the gates, that they 
may hear, and that they may learn and fear the Lord your God, and observe to do all the 
words of this law." - Deuteronomy 31:12 

Respectfully submitted, 
Laura Mae Hilliard 
Sunday School Director 

Vacation Bible School Report 

Vacation Bible School Workers are special people. They find time in a busy 
summer schedule to help people learn more about Christ, God, and the Bible. 
They agree to work in VBS to help their church, through its Bible teaching 
ministry, to enlist unreached persons in Bible study, witness to and win them to 
Christ, and involve them in the ongoing life and ministry of the church. I 
would like to say a special "thank you" to every VBS worker in the association. 

This year the VBS clinic was held in May at the First Baptist Church. Seventy- 
five people from ten out of twenty-one churches attended. This is the best attendance 
we have had in several years. I deeply appreciate all the ladies who lead the 
clinics: Miss Laura Mae Hilliard, Mrs. Linda Griffith, Miss Sara Hensley, 
Mrs. Susan Strickland, Mrs. Martha Autrey, Mrs. Nellie Styles, Mrs. Linda 
Mcintosh, and Betty Joyner for helping with the music. I want to thank First 
Baptist Church for the use of their facilities for the clinic and their van to travel 
to the State clinic; Pleasant Gap Baptist Church for providing refreshments; and 
Lucille Godwin, Faye Riddle, and Ethel Higgins for serving the refreshments. 



-27- 



Last year, eighteen of our twenty-one churches had VBS with a total enrollment 
of 997. All the reports for this year are not yet in, but from the reports that 
are in, enrollment in VBS is up this year and more professions of faith have been 
reported so far. I hope that, as the reports come in, this trend continues. 

VBS helps the church reach out, teach the Bible, witness to people about Christ, 
and minister to persons in Jesus' name. Through its unique design, VBS also leads 
people to worship, to learn about missions, and to practice stewardship of money 
and of life. Truly VBS supports the church in numerous ways to be the people 
of God in a world that needs to learn and respond to the love of God demonstrated 
through Jesus Christ.

Lavonne Murdock 
Associational VBS Director 



Church Training Report 

Early in this Church Training year a number of Associational Church Training 
Officers met with other Associational Officers to plan the year's activities. 

Participating in the Key Leadership Training on September 15 was one of the 
finest activities. 

"M" Night was held in November with Dr. Mark Corts bringing an outstanding 
message. 

Work on the Children's Bible Drill got off to an early start which resulted 
in two children from the West Burnsville Church becoming State winners. 

One youth from the West Burnsville Church joined five other youths from the 
Pleasant Gap Church in the Youth Bible Drill. All six youths were State winners. 

Matthew 28:19-20 tells us to make disciples and teach them. Ephesians 4:11-12 
tells us to equip the saints and build up the body. How well are we doing this? 

A few months ago a survey was made of our 21 churches as to training 
through the following activities: 

Dated Curriculum Dobson Films on Family 

Equipping Centers Other Film Series 

LIET Materials Continuing Witness Training 

Doctrine Studies Survival Kit I 

New Church Member Training Survival Kit II 

Master Life Survival Kit III 

Youth Bible Drill Evangelism Explosion 

Children ' s Bible Drill Stewardship 

Youth Speakers Tournament Church Study Course 

Disciple Youth Deacon Training 

Family Life Conferences Self Study 

Christian Home Week (May) BTN (Baptist Telecommunications 

Network) 

Results of the above survey did not reveal much training through these activities. 
Training can be given at any time during the week in age-graded, short term 
groups, individual study or one-to-one. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Virginia York 
Associational Church Training Director

Music Report 



In Ephesians 5:19 Paul says, "Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and 
spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to God." 

When Jesus enters a heart, along with a new relationship comes a new song. 
It may not be an outward song, but it is a song of joy that comes from the 
heart. 

We are to make melody to the Lord. This turns the eyes of the heart on Him. 
It keeps us thinking of Him. One of the blessings of the Christian faith is that 
it enables the Christian to sing under all circumstances. 

We feel that a special need is being met through our musical contribution 
to the total worship experience in our churches. 

It was a great joy to meet with several churches who made our Christmas 
songfest such a heartwarming experience. We hope to involve more churches as we 
enter the new year of service to our Lord.

WMU Report 

Many things have been happening this year. The highlights were our mission 
studies: our Foreign Mission Study, taught by Mrs. Godwin at Bolens Creek Church 
and Home Mission Study taught by Mrs. Doris Amonds, at West Burnsville Church. 
Both were represented by eight churches. Our Annual Meeting met with the Shoal Creek 
Church. Our guest speaker was Miss Jan High from the State WMU office. We were re- 
presented by nine churches, our Director of Missions and 2 pastors. 

We have celebrated the centennial WMU, in a great way. I, the Director, along 
with Mrs. Evelyn Pate, was privileged to join with 11,000 WMU Members to attend 
the Centennial Celebration in Richmond. 

As we launch "Century 2" are we satisified with the following report from 
our 11 churches with WMU organizations? 

125 -Baptist Women 

17 - Acteens 
25 - Girls-In- Action 
37 - Mission Friends 

Should this open your eyes? What are we going to do? Our people need mission 
training. Should we sit and reflect on what we might have done this year? Or are 
we going to begin Century 2 by seeing the opportunities we have let slip by? As 
we face a new day, we should be committed to the world's needs. 

The year 1988-89 promises to be the most interesting in our history. Who will 
be a missionary next century because we teach missions today? Our watchword for 
this year should challenge us to do a better job - "You have heard; Look at all 
this, and you will not declare it." Isaiah 48:6

Brotherhood Report 

Baptist Men's work is alive and growing! It is looking good. It is action! The 
focus of Baptist Men's work is active involvement. While it is often hidden behind 
the offical Southern Baptist terminology like "mission-action" and "witness- 
ministry", it always means active involvement. It is men actively involved in the 
life and witness of Christ in their churches. 

-29- 



Our name is Baptist Men. The term Brotherhood refers to the overarching 
organization which includes Royal Ambassadors, the mission education program for 
boys. 

It is MISSION PROJECTS. Men's groups are going to new church areas to construct 
buildings during the day and to witness or conduct lay-led revivals in the evenings. They 
are doing missions at home and around the world. MISSION ACTION. Many men's 
groups go regularly to nursing homes, jails, prisons and other similar institutions to visit, 
lead religious services, witness, and minister. (The book, Mission Action Projects, 
available at your book store, gives how-to for many.) Mission Action is being involved 
in your community. DISASTER RELIEF. Many state Brotherhood organizations now 
have Disaster Relief ministries, some with well-equipped mobile units capable of feeding 
4,000 persons per day and giving medical assistance to the victims of hurricanes, floods 
and tornadoes. MISSION STUDY. The finest mission education curriculum anywhere 
is used by hundreds of men's groups. MISSION SUPPORT. Men and men's groups 
have long been in the forefront of praying for and giving to mission causes. Both home 
and foreign missions, plus state, associational and local missions, are abiding concerns of 
men's work. 

How? How do these men and men's groups do it? They do it in a variety 
of ways, of course... just as you might expect Baptists to do. Most often, though, 
these groups gather monthly around a meal. Their meetings revolve around: 
AWARENESS. They study about the mission needs, at home and abroad, and pray 
about these needs. 

ADVANCEMENT. They spend time equipping themselves for actual, personal 
mission service, spiritually and otherwise, using program helps and speakers. 

ACTIVITY. They discuss mission projects available to them, plan projects, 
hear reports of activities going on, and enlist the needed help. In some cases, there 
are "spin-off groups from this monthly unit which meet at other times as 
prayer groups, witnessing groups, study groups, etc. 

In all, there are more than a quarter of a million men thus involved - that 
we know about! Many, many more aren't reported, but are actually engaged in 
the mission activity of their Lord. 

What help is available? Many resources are available to men. There is the monthly 
publication, World Mission Journal, featuring up-to-date news about missions and Baptist 
Men's involvement in them around the world. There is the Baptist Men 's Handbook with 
the monthly meeting program guides. In addition to the book, Mission Action Projects 
guide, there are many witness-ministry manuals available for projects and mission 
activities. Visit your Baptist book store or contact your state Brotherhood director and 
see! 

Youth Report 

Puppets, Bible Drills, skits, music, homemade ice cream, two nights of rehearsals 
and Yancey Youth were ready for their part in the 1987 Annual Meeting. Performing 
before a packed West Burns ville Church, they were terrific! 

Sun, pool, volleyball, fried chicken, brownies, parents and youth come together 
for an "end of the summer" day at Patience Park in late August. 

Trucks, leaves, bonfires, popcorn, games and smores; all important parts of our 
Annual "Leaf Ride." The night was beautiful as was the fellowship! 

Powerlifting, nail bending, humor, music, laughter and spirit-filled testimonies 
by Paul Wren and Buddy Freeman, made our Youth Rally a success. Young people 
and adults watched and listened as champion powerlifter, Paul Wren, shared his 
dependence on Jesus Christ for the strength that no amount of physical training 
could achieve. Buddy Freeman, humorist, made us laugh and then touched our 
hearts as he challenged each of us to a new commitment to our Lord. 

-30- 



1987-88 has been a good year! God has blessed us, and the future of our youth is 
bright— if they~if we kept our priorities in order. 

If you can trust the Lord with each decision 
Knowing for your life He has a plan, 
And then step out on faith, while understanding 
That you can't make it, but Jesus can; 

If you can see God in the things around you 
And do what's right amid a world of wrong, 
Then your life will sing with beauty everlasting 
And God will share the glory of your song.

On December 4 the Yancey Baptists gave the Annual Christmas Party at 
the Baptist Retirement Home in Asheville. The churches in Yancey responded 
with lots of refreshments. The residents had a very good time singing carols 
and we had a wonderful time of fellowship.

Cooperative Program Report 

The Cooperative Program is a financial miracle. It is the only method of support 
known to man wherby a single dollar can meet the needs of more than 7,000 
missionaries in 112 countries. 

It is not a perfect plan, but we do see the blessings of God on this system. 
Without God's help all that has been accomplished these years through the wise use 
of Cooperative Program funds would not have happened. 

Sharing Christ with the world is at the heart of the Cooperative Program. What 
we cannot do alone we can do together. Let us give through the Cooperative Program.

Home Mission Board Report 

The Home Mission Board began the Bold Mission Thrust Emphasis in 1974. Four 
years later the Southern Baptist Convention adopted the plan as a way to evangelize our 
nation and our world. Most leaders agree that Bold Mission Thrust is one emphasis 
around which Southern Baptists, no matter how diverse, can unite. 

The primary goals of Bold Mission Thrust for the Home Mission Board are evan- 
gelism, church starting and ministry. The HMB is committed to these goals, its act- 
ivities support that commitment. Here are some of the ways the HMB responded to 
Bold Mission Thrust goals in 1987. 

REACH PEOPLE: Bold Mission Thrust goals can be met as churches accelerate 
efforts to share the gospel with all people and to develop New Testament churches. 
SBC GOAL: Ten percent increase in baptisms per year. 

SBC RESPONSE: According to projection from Uniform Church Letters, the 
number of baptisms for the SBC calendar year reached 338,495, a decrease of 6.8% 
from 1986. 

HMB RESPONSE: The Personal Evangelism Department trained 1,929 people in 
witnessing, and the Evangelism Support Department challenged 50,000 people to 
become involved in spiritual renewal and witnessing. 

Through various ministries, Christian Social Ministries Centers Department mission- 
aries recorded 4,636 professions of faith. 

The Interfaith Witness Department trained 118 people to share their faith with 
those of other religions. 

The Special Mission Ministries Department saw 2,819 professions of faith reported 
by 1,391 summer missionaries. 

Mega Focus City strategy, sponsored by the HMB's Metropolitan Missions 
Department, focused on increasing baptism rates in metropolitan areas. 

Professions of faith resulting from the Evangelism Section's tract ministry 
numbered 279. 

SBC GOAL: 5,000 new churches organized by September 30, 1990. 
HMB RESPONSE: "Start-a-Church Commitment Day", a national promotional 
effort to encourge churches to start new churches, was held in March 1987. Pro- 
motional materials were provided to all SBC churches. 

In cooperation with state conventions, the Language Missions Division began 
431 language units, which included church-type missions, Bible studies and Sunday 
Schools. 

The Church Extension Division placed 469 church starters, including strategists, 
interns, apprentices and new church pastors. 

The Church Loans Division provided funds for 52 new church sites. 



-39- 



DEVELOP BELIEVERS: Churches can develop believers through prayer, discipleship, 
stewardship and fellowship in a local church. 

SBC GOAL: 3,000 new students enrolled in seminary training for vocational ministries 
HMB RESPONSE: The HMB Intercessory Prayerline shared home missions prayer 
requests with 37,780 callers. In 1987, more than 19,000 individuals participated 
in Prayer for Spiritual Awakening seminars. Prayer Partners, individuals who 
completed the seminar and committed themselves to prayer each day, increased from 
36,582 to more than 40,000. 

SBC GOAL: 4 million people enrolled in discipleship training by September 30, 1990. 
HMB RESPONSE: The Personal Evangelism Department developed a strategy for 
equipping personal witnesses using a One-Day Witnessing Workshop. 
SBC GOAL: 20,000 churches annually conducting stewardship emphases by 
September 30, 1990. 

This goal was not assigned to the HMB for fullfillment. 

SBC GOAL: 3,000 new students enrolled in seminary training for vocational min- 
istries. 

This goal was not assigned to the HMB for fulfillment. 

STRENGTHEN MISSIONS: The biblical mission of the church - to reach people for 
Christ - goes forward through persons who respond to God's call. 

Their desire to participate is strengthened through missions education, involve- 
ment, and increased giving to missions causes. 

SBC GOAL: 3 million people enrolled in missions education by September 30, 1990. 
HMB RESPONSE: In 1987, home missionaries spoke to 1,207,739 people during 
World Mission Conferences. 

SBC GOAL: 7,660 missionaries serving on United States and overseas mission fields 
by September 30, 1990. 

HMB RESPONSE: In 1987, the HMB appointed 672 new missionaries, bringing 
the total to 3,746. To help reach this goal, HMB personnel were active on seminary 
and college campuses in the following ways. Urban Evangelism Fellowships were held 
at all six SBC seminaries. The Black Church Relations Department sponsored the 
National Baptist Student Retreat, which more than 1,600 students attended, and the 
department assisted 327 students preparing for full-time Christian vocations. 
Interfaith Witness Department personnel led conferences during 14 weeks at 
Ridgecrest and Glorieta. 

SBC GOAL: 200,000 people serving as short-term mission volunteers by September 
30, 1990. 

HMB RESPONSE: The Mission Service Corps assigned 300 volunteers, bringing the 
total number of MSC volunteers to 1,089. 

The Special Mission Ministries Department and the Evangelism Support 
Department assigned 40,380 short-term volunteers. 

SBC GOAL: Every church increasing Cooperative Program giving by a minimum of 
one percent of undesignated gifts per year. 

The goal was not assigned to the HMB for fulfillment.

Annuity Board Report 



The Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention is charged by the de- 
nomination with the responsibility of administering retirement and insurance pro- 
grams to meet the needs of ministers, church employees, denominational and insti- 
tutional employees and seminary students. Money contributed by churches, agencies 
and individuals is held in trust by the Annuity Board to provide these benefits. 

A relief and supplemental assistance program assists needy, disabled and retired 
ministers and widows of ministers. This program is funded by the Southern Baptist 
Convention Cooperative Program and by private donations to the Annuity Board's 
Endowment Department. 

The Annuity Board continues to develop, offer and continually refine annuity 
and benefit programs which will give ministers, missionaries, church employees, 
denominational workers and seminary students security and protection in old age, 
illness and disability. 

The new program makes available to church staffs significant benefits such as 
matching contributions from churches and state conventions, and supplemental dis- 
ability and survivor protection. 

The key to this program is that contributions to the member's retirement income 
account come from three sources: the member, the member's church and the state 
convention. 

In June 1988 the Annuity Board will be offering a new program plan to Southern 
Baptist Convention. Upon Convention approval, the Board expects to offer new 
insurance products including church-owned property coverage, general liability, 
worker's compensation, bus liability, day-care liability and minister's malpractice 
insurance. 

The organizational plan for the new insurance program required all loss risks be 
borne by the carrier and not by the Annuity Board. 

Sincerely, 
John Davis 

The Baptist Retirement Homes Of North Carolina 
I. MISSION 

The Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc., began operation in 1951 with a 
charge to provide a Home for "Aged Saints" in the spirit of Christian care. The mission of 
the Homes continues to be that of providing quality residential opportunities for Older 
Adults within a Christian context. 

The foundation of the ministry is based in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for in the 
Gospel is a message of healing and wholeness. The Homes believes this message offers Older 
Adults the meaning, purpose, and dignity needed to enrich their lives. 

The hallmark of the Homes' ministry is the quality of its care. It is a distinction that is 
present at all levels, in all locations, in all services. The Homes takes seriously its respon- 
sibility to make its residential opportunities available to Older Adults across the State and 
to be continually responsive to the needs of Older Adults as those needs expand and change. 

With that in mind, the Homes operates facilities in locations across the State: Ashevifle in 
the West, Hamilton in the East, Yanceyville in the North, and Albemarle in the Southern 
Piedmont. A multi-level care facility in Winston-Salem currently services the needs of 
Older Adults from all over the State. 

Older Adults have differing needs, and the level of care for any single individual 
necessarily changes as time passes. It is for this reason that the Homes offers indepen- 
dent living in an apartment setting, personal care for those who require some 
assistance with daily living, and two levels of nursing care. 

-42- 



II. NEED 

According to a January 1987 Report of the Office of State Budget of the State of 
North Carolina, the number of North Carolina citizens age 65 and over will increase 
by 203,935 (28.9%) by 1995 and 286,831 (40.6%) by the year 2000. 

Statistics for the North Carolina Baptist Older Adult Population are even more 
dramatic. The percentage of increase for the 80-plus age group in the Baptist Life 
(those individuals most likely to need residential care) is predicted to be more than 
50% by the year 2000. Attempting to address this great challenge, the Baptist 
Retirement Homes has launched a bold new program of development and ministry 
that includes the following: 

1. THE DEVELOPMENT OF REGIONAL CONTINUING CARE RETIREMENT 
COMMUNITIES. 

A five-level continuing care retirement community (Brookridge) is now under 
construction in Winston-Salem. Land for that same purpose has been purchased 
in South Charlotte. Planning for the development of similar communities has begun 
in Asheville and in Eastern North Carolina. 

2. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HOME HEALTH CARE MINISTRY. 

In 1988, the Homes received a grant from the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation 
to study the feasibility of establishing a volunteer-based Home Health Care program 
that will enable frail Older Adults to continue to live independently in their homes 
with some assistance. 

The Homes believes that the ability to remain in one's own home as long as pos- 
sible can benefit Older Adults by enhancing both their quality of life and their life- 
span. Fixed incomes and meager resources mean that Older Adults are also benefited 
as they seek to use their funds prudently: there will be no charge for the Home Health 
Care services. The Homes also believes there is an enormous segment of the Older 
Adult population that is not yet in need of residential care but does need the kind of 
"light nursing" that this concept of Home Health Care provides. 

3. THE DEVELOPMENT OF FINANCIAL SUBSIDIES FOR RETIRED MIN- 
ISTERS AND MINISTERS' SPOUSES AND OTHER OLDER ADULTS WITH 
LIMITED FINANCIAL RESOURCES FOR RETIREMENT LIVING. 

The fastest growing segment of North Carolina Baptist life is the Older Adult 
population. The needs for residential living opportunities on all levels from inde- 
pendent living to nursing care) grow as the population does. A large number of 
Baptist Older Adults requiring service within a residential environment cannot afford 
the cost of that care. 

Particularly does this seem to be true for a large number of retired pastors and their 
spouses. Because so many ministers have lived in church-owned parsonages or have 
been given housing allowances, thereby never developing home equity, it is ex- 
tremely difficult for retiring pastors to underwrite the cost of retirement living 
or residential care in their later years. The Homes feels a particular commitment to 
these individuals and has responded as much as the parameters of its Benevolent Care 
Program will allow. New sources of funding must be found if this great need is to be met. 

As we move into 1989, opportunities for creative ministry with Older Adults about. 
With the support of North Carolina Baptist, the Baptist Retirement Homes will endeavor 
to turn those opportunities into the kind of reality that will meaningfully service the 
needs of the Older Adults of our State.

North Carolina Baptist College Report - 1988 

Council on Christian Higher Education 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 

WHAT IS A BAPTIST COLLEGE? 

FIRST, Baptist colleges are colleges, places where teaching and learning take place. 
During 1987 - 1988 almost 18,000 students and more than 1,300 faculty members 
worked at the task of making your Baptist colleges good colleges. A college cannot be 
a church any more than a church can be a college. Christian education of church and 
community leaders is the task your colleges gladly undertake. 

SECOND, the word "Baptist" tells what kind of colleges they are. Baptists began 
them all, provide financial support for them, and send their young people to them 
for a good education in a Christian environment. These colleges are special places 
where lives are changed and where life commitments come into focus for students. 

THIRD, Baptist colleges are partners with the churches in missions. Each year 
there are many Baptist groups which are hosted and cared for by the seven Baptist 
colleges. Some of these who met at one or more of our colleges during 1987-1988 are 
these: January Bible Study preparation; summer ministries orientation for students 
working with churches; youth ministry retreats; youth choir festivals and children's 
choir camps; pastors" schools; Christian studies for pastors and their families; senior 
adult rallies; Director of Missions summer meeting; church weekday education work- 
shops; Special Olympics for the mentally retarded; Church Training doctrine 
seminars; pastor support conferences; church incorporation seminars; WMU 
sponsored Acteens meetings; RA track meets; Pioneer RA Congress; Baptist Young 
Men's Congress; Crusader RA Congress; Baptist Student days; construction of Mars 
Hill College chapel by N.C. Baptist Men volunteers; annual May meeting of the 
General Board and all committees; March meeting of the General Board's Executive 
Committee; and more. 

The goal: CHURCH RELATED COLLEGES AND COLLEGE RELATED 
CHURCHES.

North Carolina Baptist Hospital 
Report to the Associations 
1988 

Perhaps the word which best sums up the past year at Baptist Hospital is expansion - 
expansion of facilities and services. 

The hospital, together with the Bowman Gray School of Medicine, is still in the 
midst of the largest health-related expansion program ever in North Carolina. The 
$140 million project has seen the completion of a four-story MRI building, the com- 
pletion of a six-story addition to its research building, the completion of an addition 
to the power plant, completion of additional parking space, the near completion of a 
fifteen-story patient tower, and the beginning of a new clinical services building. 



-44- 



New programs in health care, initiated in recent months, include the Brenner 
Children's Hospital, the Sticht Center on Aging, a new hand center, ligament trans- 
plants, new methods of treating certain types of cancer, new procedures for helping 
patients with heart problems, and the beginning of Air Care International. 

During the past fiscal year, the total hospital revenue budget has been $181 million. 
Total personnel is over 3,800. There were 22,085 patient admissions for a total of 
196,554 patient care days. Some 13,680 surgical procedures were performed includ- 
ing 1,022 open heart operations and 32 kidney transplants. There were 282,907 ra- 
diological procedures, 4,401,552 clinical laboratory tests, 14,500 chemotherapy treat- 
ments, 833 lithotripsy treatments, and 480 Air Care missions. 

The Department of Pastoral Care continues its ministries to: the patient in the 
hospital; the family and friends of patients; the medical staff who minister to the 
patient; the person requesting counseling in our centers in Winston-Salem, Fayette- 
ville, Morganton, Charlotte, Rockingham, North Wilkesboro; the ministers who seek 
our courses in clinical instruction, equipping them for specialized and pastoral min- 
istries. 

Added to these are our "Pastors' Sabbath" and "Interim Church" programs 

as we work closely with the North Carolina Baptist State Convention in addressing 
the needs of pastors and churches. 

The faithful delivery of pastoral care, beginning within our Medical Center and 
reaching around the world, is the ministry to which we make renewed commitment. 

Like most hospitals throughout the nation, Baptist has been faced with a critical 
shortage of nurses and other health care personnel. A variety of programs are being 
implemented which are designed to attract and hold needed staff members. Among 
these are: a day care center for children of employees, wage and salary adjustments, 
weekend shift differential, weekend options program, case management concept, 
and a loan/scholarship program for students preparing for health care careers. 

In January Dr. John Lynch, who had been president of the hospital for more than 
seventeen years, submitted his resignation. The trustees have appointed a Search 
Committee which is seeking his successor. Mr. Len B. Preslar, Jr., who for many 
years has been vice-president for Financial Management, has been named chief ex- 
ecutive officer. 

During the past fiscal year, Baptist Hospital received $659,062 through the Coop- 
erative Program and $290,585 through the Homes and Hospital Offering. The trus- 
tees, staff and patients are all extremely grateful for this financial support. 

Report to the Association 
Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina 

You took the time, you cared. You gave much when you didn't have to. On behalf 
of Dr. Blackwell, the children in care, our staff and trustees, thank you for your 
prayers, your caring and financial support. You are special to this child care ministry. 

A major thrust beyond our quality child care this year was the completion of our 
Long Range Plans. To continue being bold in child care, several challenges were ac- 
cepted by our staff and trustees from the results of our five-year LRP. We plan to add 
two emergency care homes - another one on the Kennedy Home campus and one 
where the need is greatest. The Cameron Boys Camp will be expanded to care for 50 
boys. Two specialized small group homes will be opened by early 1989 - a teenage 
mother-baby home and a behavior change program for teenage girls in Lenoir. 

Fifty percent of our children have had little or no spiritual training prior to their 
being in our care. We rejoice that 79 were baptized into the family of God. Our min- 
istry is "Missions in Miniature." 



-45- 



To meet these challenges and continue the current ministry to children, our budget 
must move from seven million dollars (which it has been for five years) to 1 1 million 
dollars by 1992-93. We hope that by 1993, the Baptists of North Carolina will be 
giving fifty percent of our daily operating budget. Currently we receive 34 percent. 
This can be achieved by increasing church receipts through the Cooperative Program, 
the Homes & Hospital Offering and designated gifts from churches and individuals. 
The future of child care in North Carolina is in the hands of the Baptists of our great 
state. We believe they will meet the challenge. 
UPDATE FROM THE WESTERN AREA: 

We here in the West continue to be blessed with mountain top experiences in car- 
ing for children. Moody Home in Franklin, Broyhill Home at Waynesville/Clyde, 
Thermal Belt Youth Shelter in Forest City and Haywood Emergency Care Cottage 
on the Broyhill Campus all continue to operate at near capacity levels. 

While alternative options now open to unwed mothers have caused the demand for 
residential maternity care to somewhat decrease, the Baptist Maternity Home in 
Asheville continues to be one of our most blessed ministries. 

The vast majority of the young people we serve come from the ranks of the hurt and 
the hurting. Sadly, very few have had spiritual training prior to their time with us. In 
order to help fill this vacuum, SONshine Week, a week of special Christian activities, 
has come to be a vital part of the Broyhill program. 

One of the highlights of SONshine '88 was when Kristy, a high school junior, 
shared her personal testimony in a way that thrilled and amazed us all. Kristy shared 
how her life was now completely transformed because of Broyhill and because of 
Jesus Christ who now lives in her heart. 

Equally thrilling to the testimony was the response of the troubled children who 
listened. As Kristy finished her testimony, the Broyhill children spontaneously gave 
Kristy a rousing, prolonged standing ovation.

Baptist Foundation Report To The Associations 1988 

For several years, Montagress Mercer has provided an example of estate steward- 
ship which members of the Foundation staff have often related, but always without 
revealing her identity. It was her wish that ' nobody know". Mrs. Mercer died this 
spring. We can now share her name as well as her testimony. It was her wish that 
"Lottie" should have her farm. To accomplish that, the farm was deeded to the 
Foundation but she retained all benefit from it for as long as she lived. As the plan for 
doing this was explained to her and the possibilities unfolded, she clasped her hands 
together and exclaimed, "I'm so happy!" Now her happiness has been justified. 
That which she desired is now a reality; the income from her trust will be paid for- 
ever to the Lottie Moon Offering. It is incidents like this which tell the story of Bap- 
tist Foundation. Facts, figures and statistics have their place, but the people behind 
them are the real story. 

Another unique expertise provided by the Foundation is in helping to analyze a 
person's total estate picture and assisting them in their complete plan of estate steward- 
ship. Sometimes, a person only wishes to make a modest gift in trust for one specific 
cause and then is content. Often, however, the person realizes that both his family 
and Baptist causes he loves can derive a greater benefit from his estate, if his plan in- 
cludes all of it. It may require more than one type of trust and nearly always a Will 
that capitalizes on the best possible planning. One couple, utilizing the Foundation's 

-46- 



expertise for total estate planning, rather than making piece-meal plans and small 
bequests here and there, took full advantage of the tax laws available for them and pro- 
vided fully for their son and the Baptist causes which they desired to support. Their 
satisfaction now comes from a coordinated estate plan. It is in total estate steward- 
ship planning, not in "getting a gift", that the Foundation renders the greatest 
service. 

The "unfunded" trust simplified planning for many persons in the past year and 
continues to provide a way to help meet the objectives of many stewards. The trust 
document is prepared to incorporate the provisions of the trustor's wishes. It will not 
take effect, however, until the individual is deceased. Then their Will provides the 
funding, most often the residual estate being assigned to the trust, hence the term 
"unfunded". The individual has the joy of having a plan in place, all signed and 
legal. 

Marjorie has updated her Will this year and created an "unfunded" trust. At her 
death, her entire estate will fund her trust. For a definite period of time thereafter, 
her family will receive income from the trust. At the end of those years, the income 
will support Baptist work forever. As she was discussing this with the staff, a new 
option became available to her. Her church established a Foundation trust whose in- 
come, when it is received by the church, will support local missions, the Lottie Moon 
offering, a church scholarship fund, and assist with capital improvement and main- 
tenance of its historic building. Marjorie named that church trust fund as the bene- 
ficiary of her unfunded trust. To her, happiness is having an accountable plan in 
place for the accountable steward. 

The Baptist Foundation added 62 new trust funds to its numbers in 1987. Gifts to 
trust increased its holdings to a record $14,452,258. Trusts already in place provided 
$578,697 in support of Baptist causes. As important as these statistics are, a signifi- 
cant aspect of The Baptist Foundation program is that it provides individuals, such 
as Mrs. Mercer, with an avenue for continuing their support of Christian causes be- 
yond their lifetime.

The Biblical Recorder 
Associational Report - 1988 

There is an old saying, "When Baptists know, Baptists will do." There is also an 
old saying, "Tell the truth and trust the people." The Biblical Recorder believes and 
tries to practice both! 

In a rapidly changing world, it is more important than ever before that Baptists 
be well-informed, which is not easy in an age that is complex, busy and competitive. 
But we must never forsake the ideal. 

Baptists, like the population in general, are watching more television and listening 
to more radio than they are reading. Somehow it just seems easier to watch and listen 
than read and think, but we must be informed and involved in the work of the Lord 
as Baptists do it — if we are to make progress. 

For 155 years, the Baptist paper in North Carolina has issued a call to greater 
missions and greater commitment to the Commission of our Lord to win, teach and 
baptize persons. 

-47- 



As the Recorder informs, it also gives opportunity for Baptists to freely exchange 
points for view. Baptists do not have a hierarchal form of church government and 
operation. Every person is important and opinions are valid in direct proportion to 
the accuracy of information upon which they are based. Democracies do not survive 
without an informed people! 

With all the upheaval in the world, the nation, and even in Baptist ranks, stability 
can be maintained only when good and sincere people know the truth and take their 
stand upon it. 

To make it possible for as many people as possible to read the paper each week at 
the lowest possible cost, there will be no increase in subscription rates for 1988. If 
your church does not have the Every Family Plan, please consider it for 1989; the 
cost is only $5.00 per subscription for the year. Special introductory offers are avail- 
able. Please contact:

God has given us a great opportunity and a great responsibility. Let us be informed 
about what is happening. Let us be involved in meeting the challenge, in being a part 
of the answer to take the Gospel to a lost world. 

Respectfully submitted,

The American Bible Society Report 

The American Bible Society was able to share more Scriptures in 1987 than any 
other year in our history, both in the United States and throughout the world. 

It is particularly heartwarming to know that in troubled Nicaragua, which has a 
population of only 3,200,000, the Bible Society was able to reach out with 2,143,517 
Scriptures last year. 

During 1987 we have witnessed once again the increasing demand from the youth 
of America for Selections which addresses the problems they face and for the trans- 
lation of the Gospel message focused on their age groups. 

We thank God for this opportunity to be of service to these leaders of tomorrow. 
With your continual help, we plan this year to increase our efforts on behalf of this 
crucial age group. 

Since 1900, the American Bible Society has encouraged churches to devote one 
Sunday a year to the presentation of the Bible cause. The date set for Bible Sunday 
is always the Sunday before Thanksgiving, but your congregation may choose a- 
nother day if that is more convenient. 

With your continued support, through prayers and offerings, we can accomplish 
much in 1988, through the American Bible Society. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Brooks Boone 
American Bible Society Representative

History 



I would like to apologize for not keeping up with all the interesting events that 
have happened in our association this year. However, some good things have hap- 
pened and I want to mention these. 

Ed and Doris Hunter of First Baptist Church took a mission trip to Brazil. They 
visited with the people at Jales Baptist Church. They came back with the slides and 
stories about the people and the work they are doing for the Lord.' As they shared this 
with us they asked us to faithfully pray for this church and their witness in Brazil. 

In April a group of WMU women from West Burnsville went to Greensboro to the 
Foreign Missions Commissioning Service. Also, two people, Lisa Mauney and Hea- 
ther Mcintosh from First Baptist Church, played in the orchestra. This must have 
been a thrilling experience for all of them. 

Mr. Nat Howell made his fifth trip to Togo this year. We have seen slides of the 
interesting and vital work we are doing for the people there. 

In May there was a county wide Associational Sunday School Workshop held with 
First Baptist. 

This summer the churches of our county along with our Associational Missionary 
are sponsoring a campground ministry at Carolina Hemlock, for the purpose of wit- 
nessing and ministering to the people there. 

I am sure there are other interesting and important things that have happened in 
our association this year. If I did not mention them, please forgive me, it was not in- 
tentional.

Annual Report To The Associations 
Christian Action League of North Carolina, Inc. 

1988 

The ministry of Applied Christianity needs committed Christians to "stand in the 
gap" for the cause of moral and civic righteousness. 

GAMBLING— The greatest push ever for legalized gambling stands on the horizon. 
We have always had those who support a state-wide lottery and pari-mutuel (horse 
and dog tracks) gambling. It is only in recent months that you have major candidates 
for state- wide office in N.C. that embrace such proposals. 

We have seen neighboring states like Virginia (lottery), Tennessee (pari-mutuel 
gambling), etc. approve gambling initiatives due to the silence of the church. 

In the 1987-88 session of the N.C. General Assembly, a lottery bill was defeated 
and a pari-mutuel gambling proposal died in committee. 

The pro-gambling industry has hired lobbyists already on the scene garnering 
support for the 1989 legislative session. The fate of this issue will be decided on No- 
vember 8, 1988, when voters go to the polls and elect their legislative leaders along 
with other key officials. Responsible Christian citizenship implies more than just 
voting but to be an informed voter. Billy Sunday put it this way: "The only thing 
worse than an empty voting booth is an empty head in a voting booth." 

The Christian Action League will continue to keep you informed and working on 
the scene. It is difficult to be effective, though, when you elect legislators who are not 
committed to moral and ethical principles. 

DRUNK DRIVING— Efforts will also continue in the area of alcohol, drunk driv- 
ing, and other drugs. In the last session, several pieces of legislation that would have 



-49- 



liberalized our liquor laws were defeated. Other measures dealing with drunk driving 
were virtually ignored or "sandbagged" by political maneuvers. 

We are grateful for the passage of legislation creating a 0.04 blood alcohol level for 
drivers of commercial vehicles (trucks and buses). This becomes the strictest in the 
nation. Other vehicles have a 0.10 standard. 

Drunk driving proposals, such as banning open beer- wine containers and increas- 
ing administrative license revocation from 10 to 30 days for those having a 0.10 
blood alcohol level or more, passed the House but got by-passed in the Senate. Who 
opposes such? The beer industry and certain trial lawyers who are more concerned 
about protecting drunk drivers than the safety of all citizens. 

ABORTION— The issue of parental consent continues to be debated. The U.S. 
Supreme Court has upheld the rights of states to require parental consent before an 
abortion is performed on a minor. Attempts to pass such legislation in N.C. have been 
met with legislative "foot-dragging." Such bills get channeled into hostile commit- 
tees where they die. A school teacher cannot even give a student an aspirin without 
parental consent, but a minor can be taken to an abortion clinic without the parent's 
knowledge, much less consent. 

Furthermore, N.C. remains the only state in the Southeast to use state funds to kill 
unborn babies. Legislation has to limit state funding to those cases involving the life 
of a mother, incest, or rape. 

TOPLESS DANCERS- There is one piece of legislation that got "derailed" that 
is unbelievable. Since liquor-by-the-drink has been enacted in N.C, we have some 
bars and taverns near military installations that have been employing minor girls (as 
young as 15) as topless dancers. Legislation to correct this practice "sailed" through 
the House but was thrown into the "briar patch" in the Senate's Judiciary I Com- 
mittee. 

When legislation of this nature cannot pass our N.C. Senate, perhaps you can 
understand the dilemma facing our state. It is quite evident that we are electing leg- 
islators according to party label rather than moral principles. Unless there is a turn- 
around, the future looks bleak for moral and ethical issues. 

The cause of applied Christianity calls for our vigilance and commitment. 

The Christian Action League stands with you in meeting the challenges of our times. 
Accept our gratitude for your prayer and financial support as we join with you in be- 
ing "salt and light."

Coy C. Privette, Executive Director

Hospitality Report 

We would like to thank Brown's Creek and Laurel Branch Baptist Churches for

We would like to thank our Moderator and our program committee for a program 
well planned and carried out. 

We would like to thank each speaker and representative that made our two days of

Director of Missions Report 

The past year has been a very exciting year in Yancey Baptist Association. We all 
have had the privilege of being a part of and sharing in this excitement. 

One of the first highlights of the past year was the Brazil mission trip. Twelve peo- 
ple from our association experienced Southern Baptist Missions first hand. Because 
of this experience lives were changed not only in Brazil, but also in Yancey County. 

The second great event was the ground-breaking service for our new associational 
office. Construction hasn't started yet, but as soon as our driveway permit is approv- 
ed we will begin. 

I could continue and tell you about our new Long Range Planning Committee that 
has just been formed or the Resort Missions Seminar that our association sponsored 
or the great success we're having in the campground ministry. But none of these 
events can be described as the greatest. To me the greatest event was the unity that 
was experienced as we worked together on these projects. Yancey Baptists are a lov- 
ing and unified people. We can do whatever we choose for the glory of God. We are 
truly twenty-one churches on mission for Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Daniel Whetstine 
Director of Missions

Sunday School Report 



This report needs to include some facts and figures that are not possible. All the 
C! lurch letters have not reached the clerk at this time. 

Southern Baptist Sunday Schools find a challenge in the 1988-89 theme. "Gather 
the people together, men and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within 
thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the Lord your God, 
and observe to do all the words of this law." (Deuteronomy 31:12) Local Sunday 
Schools have two months in this church year to "sow and reap." 

How Sunday School workers and members use these days will make a difference in 
the lives of the saved and the lost. Here are some suggested plans and goals. 

1. Absentees and prospects contacted each week. 

2. Sunday School workers meeting to pray, plan, and share monthly. 

3. Promote "in-reach." Make a list of resident church members not 
enrolled in Sunday School and visit each one. 

4. Increase Sunday School enrollment by as many as you have classes. 

5. Increase average attendance by 5 percent. 

''Share Hope. . .Reach 10" is the 1989-90 Sunday School theme. This is the last 
year of the challenge 10/90. If each of the more than 36,000 plus Sunday Schools in 
the Southern Baptist Convention would take seriously the responsibility of reaching 
and involving people for Bible Study the goal of ten million by September 30, 1990, 
could be reached. 

This challenge of "Share Hope. . . Reach 10" is one that can be accepted by in- 
dividuals, Sunday School classes, entire Sunday Schools. The challenge has gone out. 
Every Sunday School member, every Sunday School class and every Sunday School 
will respond in some way. In Yancey Baptist Association may we who are Sunday 
School members and workers say, "Lord here I am, use me." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Laura Mae Hilliard 
Sunday School Director 

Vacation Bible School Report 

"Let's Gather for Vacation Bible School." This title proved to be very appropriate 
as members of the Yancey Baptist Association met for the Vacation Bible School 
Clinic. Bible School serves as an effective tool for gathering church members within 
the association, allowing other denominations to share Christ with us, as well as 
teaching out to the lost with the love of our Lord. 

I would like to thank the workers who participated in the clinic which was held 
May 9th at First Baptist Church. Total attendance was 60. Those who led the clinic 
were: Jane Allen, Regina Autrey, Rachel Sheriff, Susan Strickland, Grace Allen, 
Jeannette VanPatten, Debbie Boone, Opal McDougald, Grey Fisher, and Daniel 
Whetstine. Also a thank you for the music provided by Beth Joyner and Linda Den- 
ny. 

Last year 20 of 21 churches within the association held a V.B.S. with a total enroll- 
ment of 1,228. Obviously V.B.S. is a big event for the youth of Yancey County. 

The clinic was greatly helped by First Baptist Church, they allowed the clinic to 
use their facilities and their van. Also a thanks to the ladies of South Estatoe for 



-22- 



preparing refreshments. Those who served were: Marilyn Young, Dena Hensley, 
Cindy Shuford, Lula Robinson, and Thelma Loftis. The youth of South Estatoe per- 
formed a skit which was written by Jeannette VanPatten. 

In closing I would like to thank the V.B.S. workers in each individual church. 
Your job is the most important of all. For Bible School is the only chance that many 
children of Yancey County have to hear of Jesus. The importance of your role in 
V.B.S. can not be stressed enough. Thanks. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Martha Autrey 

Church Training Report 

Two youth from the West Burnsville Church represented our association in the 
Youth Bible Drill. They were both State Winners. Youth Bible Drill has some 
outstanding effects on the lives of the youth. Youth Bible Drill: 
Builds a respect for and confidence in the Word of God. 
Develops an openness to the will of God in their lives. 
Enhances the relationship and fellowship with Jesus Christ. 
Equips youth to encounter negative peer pressure, to witness, and to 
minister. 

Enables youth easily to use the Bible in corporate worship and in daily 

quiet time. 
Gives a solid foundation to youth's faith. 
Develops youth into leaders. 
Children's Bible Drill and Youth Speakers' Tournament also help those age groups 
in many ways. 

Church Training has a place for preschoolers and adults. Adults have a choice of 
many different studies that will help them in their Christian journey. My prayer is 
that more people in our association will avail themselves of more different things. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Virginia York 
Associational Church Training Director 

Music Report 

Songs! Music! What an effect they can have on us! God is the Master musician and 
gives songs an important place in our Christian experience. 

At the annual associational meeting we felt that God had indeed put a song in our 
mouths as the combined choirs opened the evening session with a song of praise. 
Special groups, duets, soloists, choir and congregational singing contributed to the 
over all musical portion of our program. 

In December, with Pleasant Gap as host church, we again met to sing ''tiding of 
great joy'' as we ushered in the Christmas season. The churches who participated in 
the annua] Christmas Sing enjoyed fellowship that being with fellow Christians 
brings. 



-23- 



May we let God give us a "New Song of Praise" today. "And he hath put a new 
song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it and fear and shall 
trust in the Lord." (Psalm 40:3) 

Respectfully submitted, 
Orlena Anglin 
Associational Music Director 

WMU Report 

Our WMU Emphasis for 1989-90 - Reach, Teach, Touch. 

Let's take a look backward. During '88- '89 we were involved in several important 
meetings. 

In September Key Leadership Conference was held with West Burnsville Church. 

September 26, our Centennial Celebration was held with First Baptist Church. 
The highlight of this meeting was a skit presented by the WMU members, directed 
by Miss Sarah Hensley. 

October 18 we were fortunate to have Jan High, our state WMU Consultant, 
teaching a workshop. 

In November, our Foreign Mission study was hosted by Bolens Creek. Our teacher 
was Iva Nell Buckner. This study was well attended and enjoyed by all. 

In March we met again with West Burnsville Church for our Home Mission 
Study. Miss Sara Ann Hobbs. 

This year we challenged all our churches to go boldly forward with his word and 
show it with every person who needs to hear of our Savior. Let's put our emphasis to 
work. 

Reach - people for Christ - Reach more churches for Mission Organizations. 
Teach - our existing unions to motivate people to be involved in missions. 
Touch - people in need. 

Our watchword for the year: "And the King shall answer and say unto them, veri- 
ly I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of them, ye have done it 
unto me." (Matthew 25:40) 

Respectfully submitted, 
Opal McDougald 
Associational WMU Director 

1988-89 Brotherhood Commission Report 
Brotherhood Expansion Continues 

The Brotherhood Commission continues to feel the effects of its 1987 program 
changes that produced a comprehensive missions education package aimed at helping 
churches involve men and boys in missions. 

In October 1988 James H. Smith, Brotherhood Commission president, presented a 
plan of financial austerity following the production of 31 new books in 1987 and 
1988. The production costs had drained the agency's reserves. Smith set a goal of 
earning $240,000 over expenses in 1988-89. At the April trustees' meeting, Smith 
reported that income was already $177,000 ahead of expenses. 

-24- 



Located in Memphis, Tennessee, the Brotherhood Commission is pioneering 
several new aspects of missions education. In May, the first RA University, an in- 
depth national training event for Royal Ambassador counselors, directors, and com- 
mitteemen, was held at Rhodes College in Memphis. More than 300 people from 
across the country attended. 

The National Fellowship of Baptist Men, a ministry of the Brotherhood Commis- 
sion's adult division, continued its expansion of volunteer missions enlistment. In 
April, NFBM announced the expansion of its concert series, which will endorse up to 
200 concert artists to present the story of Southern Baptist missions and recruit 
volunteers. 

The second annual High School Baptist Young Men's Rallies were held in Gatlin- 
burg, Tennessee and Arlington, Texas, with more than 500 attending. High School 
Baptist Young Men were also represented on the second National Baptist Young 
Men's Overseas Work Project in Chile during Christmas break. Seven Baptist Young 
Men from the United States and Canada participated. 

Baptist Men served more than 95,000 meals in Mexico following Hurricane 
Gilbert's destruction. In Jamaica, Baptist Men worked jointly with the Foreign Mis- 
sion Board to rebuild churches. More than 700 volunteers participated in this nine- 
month project. 

World Missions Conferences were attended by 1.15 million people; 374 volun- 
teered for missions service and 395 made professions of faith. WMCs are adminis- 
tered by the by the Brotherhood Commission and sponsored by the Home and 
Foreign Mission Boards, Woman's Missionary Union, and Brotherhood Commis- 
sion. 

Perhaps the greatest effect of the Brotherhood Commission felt by the churches of 
the Southern Baptist Convention has again been the regular activities of Baptist Men 
and Royal Ambassadors. Through church and associational Brotherhoods men and 
boys have been involved in missions by actually doing missions activities, learning 
about missions, praying and giving to missions, and developing their own personal 
ministries. These actions have helped churches maintain integrity as God's people for 
God's world and have helped believing men grow in relationship to Christ. 

Senior Adult Report 

The annual Christmas Party for the Baptist Retirement Home was given in 
December. The churches really supplied lots of refreshments. The residents of the 
home look forward to this from year to year. I really would like to see more churches, 
and people involved in this. There are plans for more activities for the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Tommy Pittman 
Senior Adult Coordinator

Home Mission Board Report 

The past year has been a time of change for the Home Mission Board family. But it 
has been a good year, a time of renewing old commitments and looking ahead to new 
challenges. 

We have renewed our commitment to Bold Mission Thrust goals; more than ever I 
am convinced that the way to win our world to Christ is through starting and growing 
Bible-believing, soul-winning, ministering churches. As we work toward the goal of 
50,000 churches and missions by the year 2,000, we have reevaluated our HMB 
structure and organization and made some changes. Reorganization became effective 
as a partnership of caring people with one another, with state conventions, associa- 
tions and churches. 

Our partnership includes you, our home missions family. We depend on your 
prayers and support to complete the task with which you have entrusted us; without 
you, there would be no way to win our nation to Christ. 

Below is listed our standing as of December 1988 and our projected goals by the 
year 2000. 

Thank you for your support throughout the past year and for your understanding 
during our time of change. We look forward to the year ahead. 

Larry Lewis, Prsident

State Missions Report 



North Carolina is a mission field. Our 100 counties comprise a true mission 
challenge to our churches, associations, state convention and its institutions and 
agencies. No longer can we take for granted our i 'Baptist heartland." No longer can 
we assume that we have enough churches, enough ministries, enough missionaries, 
enough money. More than three million of our state's six million residents claim no 
membership in a church, anybody's church. The numbers aren't much better within 
our own denomination. Of our 1.1 million members on the roll, less than one-third of 
that number attend worship services and Bible study on a "good" Sunday. Enroll- 
ment in our church program organizations declines more a year than it grows. There 
were 100,000 more people enrolled in Sunday School 20 years ago than today. We're 
not keeping up, and we're certainly not growing. 

There is also a growing challenge in our direct mission ministries programs. 
Foreign nations have literally come to live on our doorstep with hundreds and 
thousands of people of different lands now calling North Carolina home. Migrant and 
seasonal farm workers can now be found in virtually every section of our state. There 
are greater challenges from people with special handicaps like the deaf, the blind, the 
mentally retarded. And there are new groups in need of our ministry - like those who 
abuse drugs and alcohol, those who are homeless, those who live without much hope. 

But there is hope. Our churches, associations, state convention, institutions and 
agencies still stand ready to minister in Christ's name to all people. Unfavorable odds 
have never deterred our energies. We must always reach out, minister, touch people 
wherever and by whatever means necessary. 

This is State Missions. Our churches, associations, state convention coming 
together to reach these seemingly unreachables. State Missions is Walter Jones 
teaching a Seminary Extension course in a correctional institution. State Missions is 
Alma Helton going on volunteer mission projects from Alaska to Uruguay. State Mis- 
sions is Shirlowe Powell leading in a lay revival weekend. State Missions is Amy 
Perez working with Hispanics in Charlotte. State Missions is Jesse Bowman; he's the 
first pastor of the First Baptist Church of the Deaf in North Carolina. State Missions 
is Woodie Dozier and Martin Harris - they fix things for people in Fayetteville who 
need help. 

State Missions is scholarships at Baptist colleges for Baptist students and scholar- 
ships for Baptist young people at Camp Caraway (Royal Ambassadors) and Camp 
Mundo Vista (Girls-in- Action and Acteens). State Missions is supporting Fruitland 
Baptist Bible Institute and North Carolina Baptist Assembly (Caswell). State Mis- 
sions is supporting the Christian Action League. 

State Missions is supporting Associational Missions. Almost 10 percent of the 
money received (9.5 percent) is returned to the association from where it was col- 
lected for that association to use the money in whatever mission projects it so chooses. 

State Missions is all these ministries, these people, these concerns, these institu- 
tions. State Missions is our way of responding to the Great Commission in our part of 
the world. State Missions is our way of changing lives.

Annuity Board Report 



The people we serve are the most inspiring imaginable. When we are able to report 
good experience, it is more than a bottom-line success; it is a celebration of personal 
relationships. 

Attainment of our goals depends on trust and integrity built up over 71 years of 
service. In professional parlance, we are an "immature" pension fund, meaning still 
growing. We have more coming in than is going out. May it ever be so. 

Growth of the Annuity Board is a reflection of the fulfillment of the mission of 
Southern Baptist Convention. So long as churches are planted, ministries are ex- 
panded, missions are extended and education flourishes, we will be here with grow- 
ing strength and growing service. 

In 1988 our members and churches established new milestones of commitment to 
retirement and insurance plans. Contributions and earnings set new records. 

Almost 21,000 churches in 229 Southern Baptist agencies demonstrated confidence 
in our programs. Schools, colleges, hospitals, children's homes, retirement homes, 
Baj i tioi f E | ne papei and B | isl fo idati il$ continue 
to attract skilled and concerned employees. These employees, like the ministers and 
missionaries we serve, approach their work with a devotion that can only be de- 
scribed as a "calling." 

Tens of thousands of employees are building security for old age while enjoying 
protection against financial burdens of illness, disability and death. 

When we measure the annual benefits provided, it is with an exhilarating satisfac- 
tion. More than $71 million in well-deserved retirement and relief funds was paid to 
more than 18,000 individuals this year. 

Illness and accident are always tragic. But prudent purchases of insurance by our 
participants and sound management of our insurance assets allowed us to pay 
medical claims in excess of $83 million. It required a deep dip into limited medical 
plan reserves but no valid claim went unpaid and no money was borrowed. 

Death benefit checks we delivered to widows, widowers and other beneficiaries did 
not lessen their grief. But the checks most definitely relieved some of the burdens of 
survivorship. 

Every letter, every call, every claim form becomes a personal event for someone at 
the Annuity Board. More than 300 employees extend willing and capable skills to the 
people who are our reason for being. 

As we move to a different office building for our 72nd year of operations, there is 
much that is new. But we take with us an old-time concern and commitment to the 
individual. We have a high calling, a sacred trust, a huge responsibility; for we are 
serving those who serve the Lord.

Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina 

1989: IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR 

This marks the 38th year of ministry by the Baptist Retirement Homes to the Bap- 
tist Older Adults of this State. 



-35- 



Charged in 1951 with the mission of providing residential care for "Aged Saints," 
the Homes provide care for Older Adults in five locations across the state (Albemarle, 
Asheville, Hamilton, Winston-Salem, and Yanceyville). 

A new continuing care retirement community, Brookridge, located in Winston- 
Salem will open for operation in the fall of 1989. 

Recognizing the growing need for quality residential care for Older Adults, the 
Board of Trustees of the Retirement Homes has formulated a three-pronged long- 
range plan to meet this need: 

* To work with churches and associations in the development of regional 
continuing-care retirement communties in the West, the Piedmont, and the 
East. 

* To work with churches and associations in the development of "free- 
standing" residential housing (independent-living units, assisted-living units, 
and nursing-care units). 

* To work with churches and associations in the development of alternative 
forms of residential care for Older Adults (Respite Care, Adult Day Care, and 
Home Health Care). 

One of the greatest challenges North Carolina Baptists face as they move into the 
21st century is the question of how residential-living situations for Baptist Older 
Adults are to be provided. 

With the support of North Carolina Baptists, the Retirement Homes sees this 
challenge as a wonderful opportunity for ministry.

Baptists and their colleges have been doing Christian education together for a long, 
long time. Look at those dates listed with each college above. When they are totaled, 
the cumulative number of service years for our seven colleges is 807! North Carolina 
Baptists have grown up with their colleges, so much so that it is difficult to imagine 
our total mission program without them. During the 1988-89 school year there were 
18,534 students and 2,249 faculty and staff engaged in the programs of Baptist col- 
leges. 

If you should ask our college leaders what is uppermost on their minds these days, 
you would get an answer such as this: "Christian education, Baptist students and 
Cooperative Program support." A sentence or two about each of these will complete 
this report. 

Christian Education. There are large and important differences that belong to Bap- 
tist colleges. They are smaller, friendlier campuses where Christian community is 
present and encouraged and where education and the Christian faith are compatible. 

Baptist Students. Young people from our churches are encouraged to apply to Bap- 
tist colleges. Pastors and parents can help students with their life plans when they 
guide them toward Baptist schools. Generous student aid and work study programs 
make it possible for any qualified student to attend a Baptist college.

Cooperative Program. Your North Carolina Baptist colleges say "Thank you" for 
the generous dollar support through the Cooperative Program. Baptist dollars buy 
quality Christian education and make healthy institutions possible.

North Carolina Baptist Hospital Report 

The past year at Baptist Hospital has been characterized by growth in facilities 
and personnel, advancement in medical technology and continuation of the spirit of 
personal concern which springs from the hospital's Christian heritage and its 
denominational tie. 

Occupation of the the new North Tower is almost complete, increasing the 
hospital's bed capacity to 806. Construction of the Clinical Sciences Building is ex- 
pected to be completed by 1990. The Medical Center Boulevard is currently being 
moved to make ready for expansion of the Patient/Visitor Parking Deck. Two new 
helicopter pads, one for the AirCare helicopter and a second for helicopters from 
other medical centers, will be located on top of the parking deck. The J. Paul Sticht 
Center on Aging will be built on the approximate site of the current helicopter pad. 
These new facilities will make it possible not only for our hospital to serve more peo- 
ple but to serve them better. 

In recent months the hospital's Level One Trauma Center has seen further 
development of its critical care transportation system by adding to the helicopter am- 
bulance service its own neonatal ambulance for critically ill infants. The CommView 
Computer System, developed jointly by the Department of Radiology and AT&T, 
digitizes images, stores large volumes of data and transmits the images via fiberoptic 
cable throughout the Medical Center and via satellite to other hospitals without any 
x-ray film. Some brain tumors can now be successfully treated by implanting a tiny 
radioactive pellet directly into the tumor. Other types of cancer can be treated by 
hyperthermia which carefully focuses microwaves to raise temperatures inside a 
tumor to 102 degrees to 105 degrees Fahrenheit to kill or injure cancer cells. A tech- 
nique called Mohs Micrographic Surgery allows the removal of skin with minimal 
damage to normal skin. 

These and other advances in patient care attract patients from across the country 
and around the world. Last year the 22,100 persons admitted to Baptist Hospital 
came from almost every county in North Carolina, from thirty-five states, and from 
eight foreign countries. 

The Department of Pastoral Care continues its ministries to: the patient in the 
hospital; the family and friends of patients; the medical staff who minister to the pa- 
tient; the person requesting counseling in our centers in Winston- Salem, Fay- 
ette ville, Morganton, Charlotte, Rockingham, North Wilkesboro; the ministers who 
seek our courses in clinical instruction, equipping them for specialized and pastoral 
ministries. 



-37- 



Added to these are our "Pastors' Sabbath" and "Interim Church" programs, as 
we work closely with the North Carolina Baptist State Convention in addressing the 
needs of pastors and churches. 

We renew our commitment to the faithful delivery of pastoral care, beginning in 
our Medical Center and reaching around the world. 

Baptist Hospital continues to feel the effect of the health care personnel shortage, 
especially as it attempts to open new facilities. However, we do not have any beds 
closed due to shortages. The Code Blue Program in high schools of northwestern 
North Carolina and the appeal to Baptist youth through Acteens is also creating in- 
terest in health care careers. 

During the past fiscal year Baptist Hospital received $668,937.39 through the 
Cooperative Program and $303,133.07 through the Homes and Hospital Offering, 
including church gifts directly to the hospital. The hospital staff and patients are 
grateful for the services made possible by these gifts. 

Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina 

Broken, damaged, and feeling discarded, like garbage along the highways, hurting 
children come to Baptist Children's Homes to recycle shattered lives. 

Helping pick up those pieces is Elbert Angel, the "Can Man." Elbert has raised 
money for BCH nine years by turning trash into cash. 

At one time, he collected only soda cans. He now collects anything that can be 
recycled, including glass, copper, cardboard and scrap aluminum. 

The idea to recycle cans to help children came from his brother Ralph, now de- 
ceased. One time Ralph pledged to give $500.00 to charity. Instead of taking it out of 
his pocket, he decided to earn it and improve the environment as well. 
Elbert, 72, started collecting when Ralph challenged him one night over dinner. 

"You have always been able to out- work me, but, I'll bet I can pick up more cans 
than you," Ralph said. 

"We had a contest and, of course I beat him," Elbert says. "I've been picking up 
cans ever since. We started out trying to pick up all the trash on the highway. It 
didn't take us long to realize that would not get us anywhere so we kept it to cans." 

He decided to give all the earnings for recycled products to Baptist Children's 
Homes after a visit to Broyhill. One Christmas, his Woodmen of the World group 
gave a party to children there. 

"I was shocked at the progress of the children there," Elbert says. "You could 
really see the love and security given to those kids who obviously never had it 
before." 

"We used to get a penny a piece for any kind of a drink can. The most cans I can 
remember collecting at one time was 1,287 up at Walnut Creek," he says. "As you 
can see it's hard to make a dime in this business. The work is there, but the money is 
not." He soon realized he could raise more money by buying cans from others then 
reselling them in bulk to recycle plants. 

For years, Elbert collected cans from highways and road banks of the Blue Ridge 
Mountains. Through bee stings, pouring rain, burning summers and icy winters, he 
weathered all challenges. 

"There have been nights I've collected cans with a flashlight to collect enough to 
justify burning the gas up there," he says. "Nobody will ever know the hours put in- 
to this. But the Lord, he's a' watching." 

-38- 



"At times I've started to feel sorry for myself and ask, 'Why am I doing this? 
Nobody even knows I'm out here.' But when I see the children and the results that 
are made because of money, it makes me ashamed I ever had those thoughts." 

He and his wife, Oliatta, are members of First Baptist Church, Franklin. They 
have three grown children. Elbert has held jobs in a variety of businesses including 
monuments, dump trucks and rock crushing. He did overseas construction in 
Pakistan to raise money for his children's college. 

''Just name it and I've done it," he says. "If you have the determination, you can 
do anything. Wanting to do it is 90 percent. The other 10 percent is know how." 

According to Elbert, all soda cans are not created equal. Aluminum cans bring as 
much as 40 cents a pound and steel only two-and-a-half to five cents. His biggest 
money maker is scrap aluminum. Generating the least are cardboard at 60 cents per 
100 pounds and glass at one cent a pound. 

His brother Herbert, 77, donated a long truck and trailer to help Elbert. They us- 
ed to pass us as twins. Elbert says, "I got fat and he got old." 

"Elbert loves children," says Herbert. "He is a man who will help his neighbor 
out. If a man is down he'll do all he can to help him out." 

(Reprinted from Charity and Children', Article by Deborah Aronson) 

What an inspirational story! This should make us all ashamed of the amount we 
give to the Children's Homes in Yancey County. 

These children come from every kind of broken home. They need housing, food, 
schooling, clothing and most of all love. 

Elbert Angel says "they are precious little children." If it wasn't for the grace of 
God those could be our children. 

So, please churches in Yancey County, give your money, your produce at the end 
of the season, or like Brother Angel, pick up cans and sell them. Give your money to 
help some hurting child. 

Sincerely, 
Cecil Huskins 
Baptist Children's Homes Representative 

North Carolina Baptist Foundation Report 

"Strengthening for Greater Service" had special meaning for the trust agency of 
the Convention during the past year. Noting the progress made during its 69-year 
history in undergirding the financial support for the Convention, its churches, in- 
stitutions, and mission causes, the Foundation recommitted itself to greater service to 
these causes. 

With concern that it performs its mission efficiently and that it involves more Bap- 
tists effectively in supporting the cause of Christ, the Foundation carefully embarked 
upon a capital campaign to secure funds for the construction of its own building to 
house its development and administrative offices. 

Since its staffing in the early 1950s, space for the Foundation has been provided in 
the Baptist Building. With the consistent rapid growth in assets managed and serv- 
ices provided by the Foundation, the current space has become inadequate to proper- 
ly perform the on-going work of the agency. We are pleased to report that the majori- 



-39- 



ty of the funds necessary to construct the new building have been secured. The new 
building will be erected beside the Baptist Building in Gary and we are hopeful that it 
will be ready for occupancy by the end of this year. 

In engaging in this project, it has been of utmost importance to our Board of Direc- 
tors and Staff that the on-going responsibilities of the Foundation not be neglected 
during the campaign. Indeed, the need for increased financial support for Baptist in- 
stitutions, missions, and other ministries has not diminished, and has remained our 
first priority. It is essential that more individual Baptists become aware of the 
possibility of sharing the message of Christ beyond their lifetime. Seeking to fill this 
role, the Baptist Foundation is the only entity which receives endowment gifts for 
any and every Baptist cause. Through trust and endowment funds established by in- 
dividuals, churches, and associations, the principal is invested and income is paid 
regularly and perpetually to the cause or causes named by the donor. 

Total assets of the Foundation is now approaching $17 million, of which $3.8 
million was added in 1988 alone, making this the greatest year of growth in the Foun- 
dation's history. Last year, $1,258,775 was paid to Baptist work and to individuals 
designated in charitable remainder-type trusts. This latter agreement provides for in- 
come to be paid to the donor (or other individuals) for a specific period of time and 
then to charitable causes thereafter. Through this method of making gifts to Chris- 
tian causes, the donor is assured that heirs are not neglected and that Christian causes 
will eventually benefit from the estate. 

We are continually grateful for the support of Baptists across the state who support 
the mission and ministry of the Foundation. We welcome the opportunity to serve. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Edwin S. Coates 
Executive Director 

The Biblical Recorder 

After more than 150 years as the Baptist paper serving North Carolina Baptists in 
particular and Southern Baptists in general, the Biblical Recorder is launching a new 
era of service and ministry for the decade of the '90s and the 21st Century. 

We have just completed a year-long readership survey at substantial cost and in- 
vestment of time and energy, but we believe it is going to be helpful in charting the 
course for future service to our family of faith. 

Baptists must have a single source of news and information upon which to make 
decisions and evaluate ministries. The Recorder is that source; nothing else matches 
the paper as a single resource of news, information, inspiration and challenge in our 
mission efforts together. 

Competition for reading time is keen. Baptists are facing more and more demands 
upon their time and resources. The Recorder is never a luxury; it is a necessity if we 
are to work together in this complex and demanding age. 

We have exciting plans for the future. More feature articles about North Carolin- 
ians, more articles geared to youth, family and women. An even greater focus on 
laypersons will continue after the beginning we made in 1988. 

And we are trying to work out the mechanics of church pages whereby we can save 
churches time, money and staff work by offering them a page in the Recorder in lieu of 
their weekly newsletter. Watch for more details in the Recorder in the near future con- 
cerning this time and money-saving device for the churches (and associations). 

-40- 



We have a large readership now but we want more— that is the purpose of the 
paper. We serve hundreds of thousands of Baptists but we want to serve even more. 
More than 60 percent of our news is from North Carolina now, but we want a higher 
percentage soon! 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the paper into more Bap- 
tist homes than ever before. Will you help us? Not only subscribe to and read the 
Recorder yourself but please speak a good word for the paper and urge others to 
subscribe and read it also. For more information on rates and special plans for

American Bible Society 

Around the world there are many places where Bibles are scarce or not available at 
all. During 1988 the United Bible Societies made tremendous progress in supplying 
Scriptures to such areas. The Amity Printing Press in Najing, Peoples Republic of 
China, equipped with machinery provided by the UBS, printed more than one 
million Bibles and New Testaments for use by Chinese Christians. 

Christians in the Soviet Union also received shipments of Scriptures or printing 
materials during 1988 and praise God that, in contrast with recent years, Bibles are 
no longer so hard to obtain. 

Sixty to seventy thousand people pass through Frankfurt International Airport 
every day. The Bible Societies of the world through their airport ministries try to 
provide these travelers with at least some portion of the Word of God which they can 
read during their flights and discover, perhaps for the first time, the peace and com- 
fort found in the knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. 

The Bible Societies are doing their best to meet this very real need, not only in 
Frankfurt, Germany, but in airports all around the world. 

We are encouraged to observe American Bible Society Sunday in our churches. 
Only through your continued prayers and financial support can the written Word 
eventually reach every heart. We can also contribute as individuals. Send your gifts 
to American Bible Society, 1865 Broadway, New York, NY 10023.

Christian Action League of North Carolina Report 

When the 1989 Session of the General Assembly of North Carolina convened on 
January 22, the first bills to be introduced were three lottery proposals: one in the 
Senate and two in the House. 

Such gambling legislation has become an annual event for the last six years. 
However, the pressure for establishing a state-wide lottery has been stronger this 
time around due to two factors: 1. Virginia has started ?> lottery; and 2. Revenues are 
very tight, and legislators are looking for money to grant state employees and school 
teachers a pay raise. . 4 



When this article was prepared on July 17, all three lottery bills were still in com- 
mittee. 

However, Senator Kenneth Royall of Durham, the introducer of Senate Bill 4, has 
announced that in the closing days of the legislature he will begin a push for his lot- 
tery bill. Many close legislative obervers believe that he has the votes to get it out of 
the Sentate, but there remains strong opposition in the House. 

A lot of prayer, time and energy has been exerted in the current legislative session 
to defeat any gambling legislation; to prevent any erosion of our liquor laws; and to 
support efforts to strengthen our drunk driving statutes. 

A Legislative Study Committee and the Governor's Highway Safety Committee 
held hearings throughout the state in the past year to get citizen input on ways to 
make our highways safer. As a result of these sessions, a Safe Roads Study proposal 
was introduced that consisted of the following features: 1. lower the breathalyzer 
threshold from .10 to .08 for motor vehicles; 2. ban open containers of alcoholic 
beverages in motor vehicles; 3. increase fines for drunk driving; and 4. establish a .04 
standard for operators of commercial vehicles (bus and truck drivers). The House 
passed the bill, but it's existence now depends upon the action of a House- Senate con- 
ference committee. 

Yet, with such a busy legislative agenda, the League has assisted in numerous li- 
quor elections across the state. 

We are hearing a lot of voices talking about declaring WAR ON DRUGS. U.S. 
Surgeon General C. Everett Koop has given our nation some words of wisdom: "It 
isn't ginger ale we're talking about. It's alcohol, the most widely abused drug. In the 
alleged war on drugs, alcohol enjoys a battlefield exemption. The United States will 
one day have to choose between alcohol and health. . .because we can't have them 
together." 

Yet, the pulpits of America have become silent in so many of our churches concern-

churches of your association.

Evangelism Report 
Division of Evangelism 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 

God continues to bless North Carolina Baptists through Evangelism. Plans are 
continuing to assist our churches in developing Church Evangelism Committees to 
strengthen the work of evangelism in the church. 

Many churches are still getting involved in CWT and Lay Evangelism Schools. 
The training of the laity to be involved in witnessing will continue to be a priority in 
North Carolina Baptist evangelism.

The 42nd Statewide Evangelism Conference was held in Greensboro Coliseum 
February 8-9. Dr. Landrum Leavell, Rev. Ron Dunn, Rev. Manuel Scott, Rev. 
Junior Hill, Dr. Charles Page, and Rev. Herman Rios brought the messages. Joe Ann 
Shelton and Loeen Bushman led the music for the conference assisted by Pat Long 
and Rick Setzer. 

The 1989 Evangelism Conference will be held February 6-7 at Greensboro Col- 
iseum. Dr. John Sullivan, Dr. Frederick Sampson, Dr. Jimmy Draper, Dr. Frank 
Pollard, and Dr. George Worrell will be the speakers. Dr. Dick Baker will be leading 
the music. 

Super Summer '88 was held in July at Friendly Avenue Baptist Church, 
Greensboro with the crusade on Friday night at Greensboro Coliseum. Approximate- 
ly 5,500 attended the crusade with 800 making commitments during the commitment 
service. Two Youth Evangelism Weeks were held at our North Carolina Baptist 
Assembly, Caswell, with 1,700 in attendance. 570 youth made commitments during 
these weeks. 

Again, this year the Student Evangelism Team "WITNESS" served in churches 
all across North Carolina. Everywhere they ministered, people were blessed. The NC 
Baptist Children's Homes continue to help in supporting the ministry of WITNESS. 

Fifteen regional evangelism conferences will be held across the state in October to 
inform and educate leadership about coming evangelism events and programs. The 
meetings begin at 10:00 a.m. and last until noon with lunch being served. 

Our annual Mountain Evangelism Conference and our Eastern North Carolina 
Evangelism Workshop again met the needs of these specialized areas of ministry. 

Plans are now being made for another simultaneous revival effort called "Here's 
Hope Jesus Cares For You." North Carolina dates are Eastern - March 18-25, 1990; 
Piedmont - April 1-8, 1990; and Western - April 22-29, 1990. 

Let us continue to work and witness that we may continue to see people come to 
know Him. It is our prayer that baptisms will begin to rise each year.

Church Clerk of the Year 

It has been customary in the past to name a church clerk of the year. This year I 
want to commend all the church clerks for their hard work. I realize all the time and 
hard work each one of you puts into the church letter. I want you to know that I ap- 
preciate it.

CONSTITUTION 
OF THE YANCEY BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 
OF NORTH CAROLINA 

REVISED AUGUST 1978 

PREAMBLE 

For the declaration of its fundamental purposes and the permanent gui- 
dance and control of its activities, this body does adopt the following as its 
constitution, subject to amendment: 

ARTICLE I — NAME 

The name of this organization shall be The Yancey Baptist Association. 

ARTICLE II — PURPOSE 

The objectives of this Association shall be to counsel together for the en- 
largement and strengthening of God's Kingdom of unity and growth among 
the Churches composing it; and by cooperating with the State Baptist Conven- 
tion and the Southern Baptist Convention in a program of WORLD 
MISSIONS. 

ARTICLE III — AUTHORITY 

While independent and sovereign in its own sphere, the Association does 
not claim and will never attempt to exercise any authority over any Baptist 
Church. 

ARTICLE IV — MEMBERSHIP 

Section 1 . The membership of this Association shall be composed of Pastors 
and Member Church, ordained Ministers with membership in the member 
Churches and elected Messengers and or alternates from the Member 
Churches of the Yancey Baptist Association. 

Section 2. The Association shall be composed of cooperating Baptist 
Churches in the area of the Association. A cooperating Church shall be one 
that supports any object of the Southern or State Baptist Convention and 
which is in friendly cooperation with these conventions and sympathetic with 
their purpose and work. 

Section 3. If any Church in the Association fails to file an associational let- 
ter for two consecutive years it will lose its affiliation. 

Section 4. The churches shall be represented by messengers from affiliated 
Churches. Each Church shall be entitled to two Messengers for every fifty 
members and for each additional fifty, or the fractional part thereof; 
provided each Church is entitled to two Messengers and provided further that 
all Pastors shall have seats, in accordance with the provisions of membership 
as set forth in this article. 

Section 5. Only the Messengers, or the Alternates selected by each Church, 
and the Pastor as herein set forth, and who are actually present shall have a 
right to vote; in other words, the full vote of any Church may be cast only if 
there is present a full number of Messengers or Alternates. The method of de- 
termining those who have been named as Messengers shall be by the names of 
the persons appearing upon each letter sent to the Association by the respec- 
tive Churches. _56_ 



ARTICLE V — MEETING TIME 

Section 1 . The Association shall convene annually on the first Tuesday af-

Director of Missions' Report 



During the past year I have attempted to support, encourage, counsel, teach, 
preach, and plan. I have tried to be a part of the whole ministry picture of Yancey 
Baptist Association. A great deal has happened in our association in the past year. 
Prayers have been answered and goals have been achieved. 

Perhaps the most significant achievement is the start of construction on your new 
associational office building. By the time of the annual meeting, the blocks should be 
finished and the basement slab should be poured. We hope the building will be under 
roof sometime in the fall. This building is a testimony to what Yancey County Bap- 
tists can do when we work together and seek the will of the Lord. 

Another great event, that is certainly worth mentioning, was our Brazil mission 
trip. Thirteen people from Yancey Baptist Association traveled to Sao Paulo, Brazil 
to share their faith in Christ. The results of these people's obedience to the great com- 
mission was approximately 350 decisions for Christ. A special thanks goes to Richard 
Sullins, pastor of Pleasant Gap, for his help in coordinating this trip. Richard worked 
diligently to see that all the passports and visa applications were filled out properly. 
His contacts in the passport office proved invaluable. 

A third event that I feel bears mentioning is the creation of a new "Resort 
Ministries Director" position. This position is currently being filled by Albert 
Woods. Through negotiations with the Baptist State Convention, our association was 
able to secure funds for this position for the next two years. Albert ministers in camp- 
grounds, mobile home parks, multiple-unit housing and at the crafts fair. 

Time and space prevent me from mentioning all the associational events, programs 
and projects; there were many more. There have been a lot of great accomplishments 
this past year. But the greatest accomplishment of all may go unnoticed if we're not 
careful. This is our spirit of unity and cooperation. We have a desire for the Lord's 
work to be done through us. We are all about our Father's business. This continues to 
be our greatest accomplishment!

Moderator's Report 

This has been a good year for the association, especially for me as your Moderator. 
It has been so because you have made it a very pleasant year by the spirit of coopera- 
tion and sweet fellowship. I believe the Lord will bless when His people are in unity 
and seeking to follow the leadership of His Spirit. I also believe that the results of 
what is taking place now will be seen in the coming years as the seeds are now being 
sown, watered and cultivated, then the Lord will give the increase. 



-23- 



I want to thank all of you for what you are doing and pray that this spirit and 
fellowship will continue to grow stronger with the passing of time. Keep up the good 
work. 

May God richly bless each of you in a very special way. 

Yours in Christ, 
David O. Sheriff, Moderator 

Sunday School Report 

Two questions which need an answer are these: Did our Sunday School member- 
ship increase, and was the average attendance better? At this point we cannot pro- 
vide answers because the Associational Clerk has not received all the letters. We will 
furnish this information when available. So this report is incomplete. 

The ASSISTeam promoted two major projects. A Leadership Conference was held 
in September. March was designated as Sunday School Growth Month. Not all the 
goals were reached and not all the plans realized. Some things were accomplished. So 
we say "To God be the glory" for whatever was accomplished. 

The Sunday School theme for 1989-90 is "Share Hope Reach Ten." What a 
challenge - reach ten unsaved individuals for Bible Study, reach ten church members 
not enrolled in Sunday School, increase your Sunday School attendance by ten. We 
have two months left in this church year. 

September is a special month in Sunday School work because it is the final month 
of challenge 10/90, with its goal of 10 million persons enrolled. We will be promoting 
an enrollment goal of one new member for every ten members enrolled or one new 
member per class. 

September is a special month because it is preparation time for the 1990-91 Church 
year. "BREAKTHROUGH. . .Reach to Win" is the Sunday School theme for the 
new year. The key word in this theme is BREAKTHROUGH. There may be several 
definitions for Breakthrough but for Sunday School it is best described as an impor- 
tant happening, event or discovery. What are some things we hope to accomplish? 
Each Sunday School will answer this question in keeping with its own situation. 
More unsaved people trusting Christ as Saviour and Lord, more people enrolled in 
Bible study, an increase in average attendance, improvement in Bible teaching; 
ministry enhanced are some suggested goals. 

Come! let us reason together. God has set before us "an open door." Let us enter 
and give our best to the promotion of Sunday School work in the 2 1 churches making 
up Yancey Baptist Association. May each of our Sunday Schools be by design and 
function a Bible Teaching, "Great Commission" organization! The Holy Spirit's 
presence and power are available! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Laura Mae Hilliard 
Sunday School Director

Vacation Bible School Report 1990 



In 1989. 1.080 children learned of Jesus and His love at Vacation Bible School in 
Yancey Association. This total was from 18 of our churches. West Burnsville had the 
largest enrollment with 116. 

Our 1990 clinic was a success with 54 attending. First Baptist was our host church. 
They furnished refreshments. (Louise Holcombe and Nellie Styles served), and a van 
for our trip to Brevard. A heart-felt thank you to their members. 

Those dedicated people who taught the clinic were: Regina Autrey. Rachel 
Sheriff. Debbie Boone. Bunny Mcintosh. Susan Strickland. Rev. Lester Murphey, 
Rev. Daniel Whetstine. Rev. .Albert Woods. Beth Joyner and Lavonne Murdock for 
their help with the music. Thank you all for your help in making a VBS Clinic possi- 
ble in Yancey Association. 

With Jesus as our guide. 

Martha Autrey 
VBS Director 

Music Report 

"There's a sweet, sweet spirit in this place, and I know that it's the spirit of the 
Lord." Surely, all present at our annual Christmas Sing felt the sweet spirit that was 
present. Let's not forget to acknowledge that spirit as the Spirit of the Lord and to 
praise Him for the blessings. Thank you churches, for your participation and 
preparation toward a successful "Praise Time." God has surely blessed Yancey 
Association with musical talent and provided people who would make themselves 
available so that His name would be glorified in song. 

Thank you. God. for Yancey Association's "Musical Family" from our churches. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Jean Whitson 
Associational Music Director 

Woman's Missionary Union Report 1989-90 

The WMU Emphasis for 1989-90 - Reach. Teach. Touch. Have we reached those 
who need to be enlisted in WMU? Have we taught and touched those who are hurt- 
ing? I'm afraid not. One of Satan's tools is discouragement but "Let's not look back, 
but forward." Our emphasis 1990-91 is "Empowered." Let's pray that our people 
will be empowered by the Holy Spirit, and will let Him work in our hearts and 
minds, knowing the Holy Spirit gives gifts as they are needed to accomplish His 
work. 

\out Director and Associate Director attended Key Leadership Conference at 
Ridgecrest in May. We then led our Key Leadership Conference meeting with Mt. 
Pleasant Church. Seven churches were represented. 

For our Foreign Missions Study we met with Shoal Creek Church. Our speaker the 
Rev. Lester Murphey led a very inspirational study. Seven churches were 
represented. 



-26- 



We met with Bolens Creek Church for our Home Mission Study. Miss Suthell 
Walker, Home Mission volunteer, and her co-worker, Mrs. George, provided us 
with a delightful evening of study. Eight churches were represented. 

As we think of our new emphasis "Empowered" we might ask, how did Christ 
challenge His disciples to get involved in witnessing and ministry? He set the exam- 
ple - Matthew 11:4-5. He taught them daily - Matthew 11:28-30. He said, "If ye 
know these things, happy are ye if ye do them." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Opal McDougald 
Associational WMU Director 

Discipleship Training Report 

You will note we have a new name. Being a disciple has been the purpose and goal 
of every follower of Jesus Christ for two thousand years. We have been training 
disciples for a century under several different names. 

If we are going to be New Testament Churches, training disciples is a must. It is a 
scriptural requirement for Christians and churches. 

In September of 1989 Key Leadership was held with the Mt. Pleasant Church. 

On November 20, 1989, "M" Night was held with the Mt. Pleasant Church. Rev. 
Grey Fisher, pastor of Shoal Creek Church, brought an inspirational message. 
Maurice Cooper, Director of Discipleship Training for our State Convention, told us 
about the different Life Courses which he had on display. He also played the piano 
for us. 

One member of the Bolens Creek Church participated in the Children's Bible 
Drill. Two youth from the West Burns ville Church participated in the Youth Bible 
Drill. We are indeed grateful that they have disciplined themselves and stored up so 
much scripture in their minds. I'm sure their contacts with other boys and girls in the 
Regional and State Drills have been beneficial. 

Remember Discipleship Training is the best way to make disciples; and as we 
make disciples, we change the world. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Virginia York 

Associational Discipleship Training Director 

Historian's Report 

We are just a short time away from another Annual Meeting of the Yancey Baptist 
Association, on August 7, with Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, and August 8, with 
Shoal Creek Baptist Church. It is hard to believe that year 111 is another page of 
history in our association. 

As we remember the great things we have done in this year we are closing, let us all 
tune our hearts and minds to year 112 and make it a year of some of the greatest 
things we, as an association, have ever accomplished. 

May 21, 1989, was the ground-breaking ceremony for our new Associational 
building. Since then the foundation has been started and the building is taking 
shape. Can 1990 be the year in which we will see that long "dreamed for building" 
in reality? 

-27- 



Our Baptist Association is over 100 years old. As we dedicated our building, could 
we not dedicate ourselves to a united association, to work that is needed to win the 
lost, help those who are sick, or in need and to let others know that we care? 

Thirteen people from Yancey Baptist Association and three from Mitchell Associa- 
tion left on May 17, for a two week volunteer mission to Sao Paulo, Brazil. Those 
making the third year that a group from Yancey County has visited this region are: 
Howard and Kathleen Buchanan, Michele Christon, Rick Fender, Lawrence Glenn, 
Holli Greiner, Dena Hensley, Terry Hensley, Louie Hughes, Milidene and Tanya 
Laws, Cindy Shuford, Richard Sullins, Daniel Whetstine, David Whitson, Marilyn 
Young. 

One of our own, Mr. Nat Howell, will be leaving on Friday, August 3, for another 
trip to Poland. He will be joining the Polish Baptist Union Partnership once again in 
their work on the Baptist Seminary, which hopefully will be completed within the 
next two years. For the first time in history, those workers will be joined by a group 
from Russia as brothers-in-Christ who are eager to help their fellowman. This will 
make Nat's 11th year to cross the waters in brotherly love to share his Christian 
leadership and his many talents and skills with those who are in need. 

Many revivals have been held in our association recently with many new converts 
and rededications. 

Our Vacation Bible Schools have reported on the success of their schools and the 
many new converts and rededications they experienced. 

As we close this Associational meeting, let us go with a new determination and a 
burning desire in our hearts and minds to be "up-and-about" in our own Association 
and in the world to help our brothers and sisters know the Christ we know. 

"In Christ there is no East or West, in Him no North or South, but one great 
fellowship of love—. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His 
sight." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sara Hensley 
Historian

Yancey Baptist Association Building Report 



The wheels of progress are beginning to turn! The site preparation has been com- 
pleted and the Yancey Baptist Center construction is beginning. Many of the hurdles 
have been removed. All of the block work has been completed and the basement slab 
has been poured. We anticipate the building to be under roof this fall. 

As of June 30, 1990, we had $24,219.12 in our Building Fund Account. A special 
thanks to our churches and individuals who have given to our building fund. We 
need to continue our giving and we urge our churches that have not given to take 
part. Let us each work, pray, and give so that our building may become a reality! A 
thanks to the committee members who met faithfully throughout the year: Vernon 
Cook, Barbara Smith, Jearline Hensley, Luther Lawhern, Mary Ruth Webb, Lester 
Murphey, Chairman.

Foreign Mission Report 

During 1989 some remarkable things happened because you supported Southern 
Baptist foreign missions work. Here are just a few examples. 

A record 227,564 people were led to the Lord and baptized. In terms of a ratio, 
that means one baptism for every 10.7 Baptist church members overseas. This com- 
pares with one baptism for every 40 Southern Baptists in the U.S. 

Medical missionaries and national medical personnel cared for more than 1.4 
million patients. 

More than $5 million of your gifts helped support hunger and relief efforts in 44 
nations. 

Baptists produced 50,000 television and radio programs on 483 stations. They 
distributed 6.5 million periodicals, 3.9 million books and almost 20 million tracts. 

Your support came in many forms. You prayed for, financially supported and cor- 
responded with 3,780 foreign missionaries. And more than 10,000 of you traveled 
abroad to fill short-term volunteers' needs. 

Unfortunately, for the first time since 1972, Southern Baptists finished the year 
with fewer foreign missionaries than they started the year with. To be precise, 87 
fewer. This was part of a steady decline in appointments over the last five years. 

But the outlook for the coming year appears brighter. An encouraging number of 
qualified people are requesting appointment information and moving through the 
appointment process. 

This new decade presents Southern Baptists with some unparalleled opportunities. 
As we approach the year 2000 and the culmination of Bold Mission Thrust, there is 
still much work to be done. 

In 1989, you gave nearly $69 million through the Cooperative Program, an in- 
crease of about $1.8 million over 1988. 

You responded to reports of a budget cutback and shortfalls in missions funding in 
1988 with a gratifying Lottie Moon Christmas Offering of almost $79 million. 
Though receipts were short of the goal, the offering received during 1989 increased 
12.7 percent over the previous year. 

Hunger and relief offerings decreased to $7.2 million from nearly $8.4 million in 
1988, partly because national attention did not focus on a specific famine such as in 
Ethiopia in 1985. 

Of all the funds you sent to the Foreign Mission Board, more than 61 percent, 
$108.1 million, was spent in direct support of foreign missionaries. That's $5 million 
more than 1988. 



-35- 



In addition, $23.7 million was spent in direct evangelistic efforts, church planting 
and church leadership training. That represents 13.5 percent of all missions funds. In 
1988, these activities represented 11.1 percent of funds spent.

Administration and promotion II '/< 



Home Mission Report 

The Home Mission Board initiated Bold Mission Thrust in 1974. Four years later, 
the Southern Baptist Convention adopted this strategy to present the gospel to 
everyone on earth by A.D. 2000. The following are ways the HMB responded to Bold 
Mission Thrust in 1989. 
REACH PEOPLE 

SBC Goal: 10 percent increase in baptisms each year. 

SBC Response: Uniform Church Letters indicated that baptisms reached 353,000 
in 1989, an increase of 1.9 percent over 1988. 

HMB Response: Personal Evangelism led 2,250 volunteers to knock on 120,000 
Las Vegas doors prior to the Southern Baptist Convention, resulting in 471 profes- 
sions of faith. Personal Evangelism held its first National Soul- Winning Conference, 
with 229 teams visiting 3,570 homes and reporting 70 professions of faith. 

Missions Ministries reported 15,052 professions of faith by 320 Christian Social 
Ministries (CCM) missionaries. 

Church Evangelism distributed 150,000 salvation tracts and documented 325 pro- 
fessions of faith through the Correspondence Bible Course. 

SBC Goal: 5,000 new churches organized by September 30, 1990. 

HMB Response: In 1989, short-term volunteers took hundreds of surveys to locate 
people who were open to the gospel; some volunteers started home Bible studies; 
some served as mission pastors. Forty-three percent of Mission Service Corps 
volunteers are involved in starting and strengthening new churches. 
DEVELOP BELIEVERS 

SBC Goal: Every church should have intercessory prayer activities. 

HMB Response: In 1989, the Home Missions Intercessory Prayerline shared 
prayer requests with 70,000 callers, an increase of 18.9 percent over the number of 
callers in 1988. The Prayer and Spiritual Awakening (PSA) office trained and cer- 



-36- 



tified 126 instructors to teach PSA seminars and committed themselves to pray daily 
for spiritual awakening for our nation. Mass Evangelism enlisted 5,317 church 
members to join the Daniel Prayer Team to undergird the 1990 simultaneous 
revivals. 

SBC Goal: 4 million enrolled in discipleship training by September 30, 1990. 

HMB Response: In 1989, New Church Extension provided ongoing training and 
personal growth opportunities for missions personnel. They encouraged church 
member and leader training in new churches and encouraged all church planters to 
have Discipleship Training in their churches. 
STRENGTHEN MISSIONS 

SBC Goal: 3 million enrolled in missions education by September 30, 1990. 

HMB Response: In 1989, Language Church Extension worked with Woman's Mis- 
sionary Union and the Brotherhood Commission to develop language materials for 
missions education; they initiated and developed mission organizations in ethnic 
churches. 

All Southern Baptist pastors, WMU directors, and Brotherhood directors received 
free subscriptions to Missions USA print magazine, the primary purpose of which is 
missions education. 

SBC Goal: 7,660 missionaries serving on United States and overseas mission fields 
by September 30, 1990. 

HMB Response: The HMB appointed 670 new home missionaries, bringing the 
total to 3,808. 

SBC Goal: 200,000 short-term missions volunteers by September 30, 1989. 

HMB Response: 1989, Mass Evangelism conducted an Urban Evangelism Prac- 
ticum for 40 seminary students in director evangelism. 

Interfaith Witness trained "event" volunteers, or Interfaith Witness Associates, to 
share their faith with people involved in cults and world religions. 

New Church Extension promoted starting new churches through volunteers and 
provided training opportunities for sponsoring church leaders and volunteers. Divi- 
sion staff enlisted and assigned 106 seminary students to start churches through 
PRAXIS. Associational Evanglism networked volunteers in urban evangelism 
through Friends of Evangelism. 

Mission Service Corps has 1,214 volunteers currently serving. Short-Term 
Volunteers recruited, trained, and placed 47,451 volunteers in 1989. 

This goal has been exceeded. 

Children's Home Report 

If change is the only constant, then BCH was constant in 1989. The winds of 
change blew softly across this great ministry with surety and excitement. 

We successfully completed year one of our five-year plan. We appointed study 
commissions, reshaped programming at Mills Home and Odum Home, dedicated 
two new group homes, tackled the problems of child abuse in Davidson County, 
celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of Kennedy Home, laid plans for a capital campaign 
drive in 1990, rejoiced when the State Convention voted to reinstate our Thanks- 
giving Offering in 1991, broke ground for expansion at Cameron Boys Camp and ex- 
pressed gratitude for a record year in estate bequests. 

On June 4, we dedicated the Marguerite Noel Home for Girls, and Care House, 
our new house for teen-age mothers and their babies. Nearly 500 area residents 



-37- 



packed the Lower Creek Baptist Church for this service of commitment. 

Later in June, we dedicated the Philpott Parent Aide Program of Davidson Coun- 
ty, as in-home service to combat the pervasive problem of child abuse. Working 
closely with the Davidson County Department of Social Services, our Parent Aide 
Coordinator has trained 20 volunteers to work quietly but effectively in the homes of 
Davidson County families who are "at risk" for child abuse. 

The summer was also a time for program and personnel reorganization at Mills 
Home and Odum Home. Our caring staff is receiving solid training and direction in 
the delivery of quality services to children and families in these perilous times. 

For the last few years, BCH has been part of two productive partnerships with 
Convention personnel. In partnership with the Council on Christian Life and Public 
Affairs, Senior Adult Rallies have been held on each of our campuses. 

And 1989 saw the conclusion to a three-year partnership with the evangelism 
department. BCH became a major sponsor of WITNESS, a marvelous group of col- 
lege students who sing and speak in scores of churches and recreational areas, when it 
was about to fold for lack of funds. 

Saturday, July 1, dawned clear and beautiful in eastern North Carolina, a good 
start to a memorable day at Kennedy Memorial Home in Kinston. This venerable 
child care facility celebrated its 75th anniversary with 1,600 friends coming for food, 
fun, fellowship and displays of what this institution has meant to eastern North 
Carolina. 

The 30th Annual Western North Carolina Conference was held on its traditional 
Thursday following Labor Day. Nearly 700 faithful friends gathered on the Broyhill 
Home campus in Clyde to thank God for His continued goodness. In August, more 
than 1,000 alumni and friends attended Mills Home's annual homecoming. 

Our board of trustees adopted an $8 million budget for 1990. Like all previous 
years, 1990 will be extremely "tight" as far as money is concerned. Child care costs 
have escalated so rapidly it is difficult to keep up. 

A continuing source of gratitude for trustees and staff is the trust many people 
place in BCH when they remember us in their estate plans. In October 1989 we 
received our first million-dollar bequest, from the estate of Willard Parker of Mur- 
freesboro. We offer free counsel to any one interested in estate planning. 

We spent an enormous amount of energy in promoting the recommendation which 
came before the Baptist State Convention in November to restore the traditional 
Thanksgiving Offering to BCH. The change was overwhelmingly approved and 
takes effect in 1991. I'm grateful to staff, trustees, alumni and volunteers, and 
especially to Cleve Wilkie, a Kennedy/Mills Home alumnus who spoke so eloquent- 
ly, humorously and effectively in favor of the vote at the Convention. 

The last major event of the year came on a clear, but frigid Sunday afternoon 
December 17 when many friends and supporters gathered at Cameron Boys Camp for 
ground-breaking ceremonies for the Tommy and Jeanie Eller Chuck wagon, the first 
step increasing camp capacity from 30 residents to 50. The Eller Chuckwagon will 
eventually be the central dining hall and gathering area for campers and staff. It will 
be completed, along with a warehouse and shower house, in 1990. The Ellers, of 
Salisbury, gave the lead gift to make the new dining facility a reality. Joining them at 
the ground-breaking were several of their Salisbury friends, including Clyde Mickle, 
Dan Kirk, and Tom Smith, president of Food Lion, who has taken a personal in- 
terest in Cameron Boys Camp.

The decade of the 1990s has dawned. With it comes new opportunities for growth 
and change. The two are woven together. Change produces growth and no growth 
comes without change; not necessarily in size, but in quality, compassion and serv- 
ice. These are the winds of change for which we are most concerned. 

Taken from the President's Message 
Dr. Michael Blackwell 

Christian Action League of North Carolina, Inc. 

The last 12 months have been eventful ones in the ministry of applied Christiani- 
ty- 

LEGISLATIVE ISSUES 

1. GAMBLING 

As this report is being prepared the battle is still on concerning a state-wide lot- 
tery. The gambling industry is well-staffed with its personnel and lobbyists who 
relentlessly pursue their interests among the members of the General Assembly. 
Legislators are constantly barraged by one of them to "let the people vote" to put the 
state into the gambling business. 

2. DRUNK DRIVING 

Proposals from Governor Jim Martin and even a Legislative Study Committee 
that would really toughen our drunk driving laws seem to be tied up in a House- 
Senate Conference Committee. Some well-known Senate defense attorneys are deter- 
mined to keep anything of real substance from passing. 

The pending legislation calls for: 

a. The lowering of the breathalyzer blood alcohol level from .10 to .08; 

b. The banning of open containers of all alcoholic beverages in motor vehicles; 

c. Increasing the civil revocation of drivers' licenses from 10 to 30 days; (North 
Carolina is the only state in the nation with less than a 30-day loss of driving 
privileges for registering a .10 or above on the breathalyzer.) 

d. Increasing the fines for being convicted of drunk driving; (In 1947 the minimum 
fine was $100, and it is still the same 43 years later.) 

3. ABORTION 

a. Because of the outstanding work of Representative "Skip" Stam of Wake Coun- 
ty, the House voted to reduce the state's abortion fund from $400,000 to 
$100,000. These remaining funds could not be used for abortion as a means of 
birth control. They could only be utilized for abortion when the mother's life is 
endangered, or in cases that result from rape or incest. However, the Senate 
voted to leave the funding at its current rate, so the measure is now tied up in a 
conference committee. 

b. A parental consent proposal overwhelmingly passed the House requiring a 
parent's approval before an abortion could be performed on a minor. (Such con- 
sent is required before a school official can give an aspirin to a student, but such 
consent is not required for a minor to receive an abortion.) But it appears that 
the Senate will not approve this measure. 

4. MISCELLANEOUS 

Other legislative proposals such as raising the tax on alcoholic beverages, requiring 



-39- 



the teaching in public schools of sexual abstinence outside of marriage to combat the 
teenage pregnancy problem, and making the possession of child pornography a 
felony were considered but were side-tracked by the State. Incidently, the tax on 
beer has not been increased in North Carolina since 1969. This reveals how strong 
the beer lobbyists are. 

CHURCH AND COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE 

In the past year, the League has successfully assisted in alcoholic beverage cam- 
paigns in places such as Hertford County, Pamlico County, Concord, Lumberton, 
Manteo, Randleman, Waynesville, etc. in their efforts to defeat various referenda 
such as liquor-by-the-drink and beer- wine sales. 

We have sought to keep the Christian community informed on moral and ethical 
issues through our publication Tomorrow, and through speaking in churches, pastor's 
conferences and civic clubs. 

Thank you for your prayer and financial support in our ministry of applied Chris- 
tianity.

The American Bible Society Report 

Because of your loving care and concern and your great generosity, "Gifts of Love 
- Bibles for the USSR and Eastern Europe" has already provided more than half a 
million Christians with their own Bibles and New Testaments. 

One small Spanish American Baptist Church of 52 members sent more than $800 
to share God's Word with our brothers and sisters in Christ in the USSR and Eastern 
Europe. And the interesting fact is that both believers and non-believers want to have 
access to Bibles. 

In 1989 millions of people around the world for the first time, were able to read in 
their own languages the wonderful words of life and love found in the Scriptures. 

Our churches will have an opportunity to participate in the "Gifts of Love - Bibles 
for the USSR and Eastern Europe" campaign on Bible Sunday, November 18, 1990, 
when offerings for the American Bible Society will be channeled toward this tremen- 
dous effort.

North Carolina Baptist Foundation Report 

The historical records of the North Carolina Baptist Foundation will reveal 1989 
and 1990 to be significant in its 70 year history. Organized following action taken at 
the 1919 Convention and chartered by the State of North Carolina in 1920 as a 
charitable corporation, the Trustee agency of the Convention has only in recent years 



-40- 



begun to have an impact in providing financial support for Baptist institutions and 
mission causes. 

Charged with the responsibility of creating greater awareness among Baptists 
within North Carolina concerning estate stewardship as a viable and significant 
means of providing financial support of Christian endeavors fostered by our chur- 
ches, the Baptist Foundation assists individuals in the establishment of endowment 
and trust funds. Through these funds, financial support is provided the donor's 
chosen Christian cause or causes on a continuing basis for years to come, long after 
the donor's death. 

The growth of the Foundation, in terms of assets managed, has been significant 
during the past few years. Since January 1, 1988, the assets placed under manage- 
ment of the Foundation have increased by over $13 million through May 1990. This 
exceeds the asset goals set in 1986 for a five year period. 

Trust income distributed to Baptist institutions and mis- 
sion causes 1988 and 1989 $ 1,106,930 

Trust income distributed to individuals with Baptist 
causes named as charitable remainder men during 1988 

and 1989 $ 1,361,836 
Assets held in trust and endowment funds as of June 1, 

1990 (unaudited) $26,176,481 
Assets held in trust and endowment funds as of 

December 31, 1989 (audited) $18,133,634 

Gifts of appreciated assets, such as stock and real estate, can be placed in trust to 
generate income for individuals and then pay income to Christian causes beyond 
their lifetime. As a result of this unique opportunity to give, older adults are realizing 
the joy of establishing life income trusts. This plan often provides a significant in- 
crease in personal income, by-pass of capital gain taxes, creation of a charitable 
deduction for income tax and estate taxes, and assures an eventual gift to Christian 
endeavors. 

A new home for the Baptist Foundation was built during 1989 and early 1990. The 
6,000 square foot office building was constructed from gifts from individuals and is 
located on property provided by the Baptist State Convention next to the Baptist 
Building in Gary. The new facility was occupied in February 1990, and provides 
much needed space for the work of staff as well as for conferences and meetings. Bap- 
tist groups are invited to use the meeting rooms when in the Raleigh/Cary area. We 
extend an invitation to church groups to call and arrange a visit to the newest 
building used for the Lord's service by North Carolina Baptists. 

The Foundation employs seven full-time employees and operates under the direc- 
tion of a 20 member Board of Directors elected by the Baptist State Convention. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Edwin S. Coates 
Executive Director

Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc. 

1990: Providing the Best of Times to North Carolina Older Adults 

Making life for Older Adults the Best of Times is the continuing goal of Baptist 
Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc., which operates four residential facilities 
for Older Adults around the state — in Albemarle, Asheville, Hamilton and Winston- 
Salem. 

In Asheville, our efforts include a move toward expanding the Western North 
Carolina Baptist Home. The Board of Trustees of Baptist Retirement Homes applied 
in July for permission to construct the 60 nursing care beds the state is allocating to 
Buncombe County in 1990. 

State approval of its plans will be the next step toward adding a health-care unit to 
the facility, a unit offering skilled and intermediate nursing care. Currently the only 
nursing care provided by Baptist Retirement Homes is the 85-bed nursing-care unit 
at Brookridge Retirement Community in Winston- Salem, the newest facility 
operated by Baptist Retirement Homes. 

Around the state, the other homes face a promising year. 

In Winston- Salem, Brookridge Retirement Community celebrates its first birth- 
day in 1990. It is the largest of the facilities, providing five levels of care — indepen- 
dent living in garden homes, independent living in apartments, and assisted living, 
intermediate nursing care and skilled nursing care in its healthcare unit — to over 
350 Older Adults. 

The facilities in Albemarle and Hamilton provide assisted living in a residental 
setting to 30 Older Adults each. Both programs are greatly enhanced by the strong 
support of the surrounding community and its churches. The Brotherhood, WMU 
and senior adult clubs at many nearby churches provide fellowship, entertainment, 
skills and physical labor, household needs — whatever they see are needed by each 
home. 

The Albemarle Baptist Home also offers respite care for those families who care for 
an Older Adult and need some time away from that responsibility. The cost of the 
care is paid by the family, and it provides overnight care for whatever length of time 
the family needs. 

It, and other alternative forms of residential care for Older Adults, are additional 
ways being explored by the Homes to meet the growing needs of the Older Adult Bap- 
tist population in this state. 

Please pray for our ministry. 

Baptist Hospital Report 

"The largest health- science building program ever in North Carolina has changed 
the landscape on Hawthorne Hill, and changes continue in rapid succession. . . One 
thing that hasn't changed is the institution's tradition for delivery of compassionate 
health care. That will never change." This statement, from Dr. Charles P. 
Nicholson, Jr., Baptist Hospital Trustee and Chairman of the Medical Center Board 
of Directors, is both a report and a commitment. 

Another building in this $190 million expansion program has recently been com- 
pleted and occupied. The Clinical Science Building will house most of the Medical 



-42- 



Center's ambulatory services, and has been termed a "medical supermarket, " 
where patients may do "one-stop shopping." The building will also accommodate an 
Ambulatory Surgery Unit, Medical Center Administrative Offices, and other func- 
tions. Nearing completion, is the Day Care Center for children of medical center 
employees. Under construction, is an addition to the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Im- 
aging) Building, and a significant addition to the Patient/Visitbr Parking Deck. Con- 
struction on the Center on Aging Building is scheduled to begin in early 1991 with 
the completion date set for the spring of 1993. 

The purpose of all these new facilities, according to hospital president Len B. 
Preslar, Jr., is to "enable us to respond to patient needs better than ever before." In 
addition to continuation and inprovement of many established procedures, several 
new diagnostic and treatment programs have been started recently. The Organ 
Transplant Program added a new dimension when it performed the first single-lung 
transplant in North Carolina. Bone marrow transplants are also being performed 
now in our Baptist Hospital. A Cranio-facial Clinic, to correct major deformities of 
the skull and upper face during the first year of life, opened recently. New laser 
technology provides an improved method for clearing out atherosclerotic deposits in 
the carotid arteries of the neck. New surgical techniques make possible better treat- 
ment of complicated retinal detachment. Orthopedic Surgeons began use of the II- 
izarov Technique for the repair and lengthening of broken bones. New approaches 
are being used effectively in the treatment of children with Cerebral Palsy. Bowman 
Gray/Baptist Hospital is the only medical center in the nation using and evaluating 
Clinodean, a non-narcotic pain killer which has proven effective in controlling pain 
following surgery and for cancer patients. 

Through these various services we provided 210,456 days of care for 22,607 pa- 
tient admissions last year. In addition to these, there were approximately 388,000 
ambulatory patient visits in the various clinics, the Emergency Department, the Day 
Hospital, and in Ambulatory Surgery. These patients came from all across North 
Carolina and from 34 other states. Also the number of patients being referred to us 
from foreign countries is increasing as the reputation of the Medical Center spreads 
throughout the world. 

The Department of Pastoral Care continues to strengthen its reputation both as a 
service agency and as a teaching facility. Last year, the department provided more 
than 29,000 ministries to hospital patients, almost 19,000 services to families, and 
more than 14,000 services for hospital and church staff members and their families. 
The Minister's Care Plan, a joint program with the Baptist State Convention, had 
1,446 sessions with more than 200 different clergy families last year. The new Mis- 
sionary Counseling and Support Services Program saw 48 individuals in its first six 
months. The Division of Clinical Pastoral Education/Chaplaincy had 53 students 
enrolled. 

During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1990, the hospital received $692,946.24 
through the Cooperative Program and $271,361.24 through the Homes and Hospital 
Offering and direct gifts. Cooperative Program Funds are used for the Department of 
Pastoral Care, and other church gifts help to provide Benevolent Care for financially 
needy patients. The hospital staff and patients are most grateful for this continuing 
financial support.
